Keeli's Camp Reflection

While we were driving to camp, I had lots on my mind. I was nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. I wondered if I was going to enjoy myself or not. I was hoping I would have a good time.

We got to camp and there was a water slide.I assumed it would be fun. As soon as I could, I went down it. When I got to the bottom, I decided it was so fun, I would keep going until I was so cold I could barley move. It seems to me that if the water slide was fun, then the other activities would be too.

Instead of going kayaking, I decided to build bivouacs. At first I had no idea what a bivouac were.But I soon found out that they’re a little bush hut made out of branches and leaves. To get the toi toi we used for the carpet, we had to reach up into cutty grass. I realised that lifting your friend up isn’t the best idea.

The Burma Trail seemed scary at first ,but in the end I realised I had nothing to worry about. Except all the parents hiding in the bushes waiting to scare me. I guess I was just scared because it was my first time.

I am glad I went on camp because I had a good time. I learnt that if you give everything a go you will have fun. I would definitely go on camp again, because there are lots of opportunities to try new things.
