Camp TC (Take Charge)
Nervously but also full with lots of excitement, I packed my bag on Sunday. I was ready for camp.
The camp was for the year 7 and 8 students. It was held at Point England School on the top field. It was very cool because the year 7 and 8 got to celebrate 21 years of school camping. My group name was Motivatorz and my leaders were Sione and Paulitia.
My group, Motivatorz, first activity was putting up tents, that’s my best activity. Putting up tents was fun. Sione, Tevita and myself were in the same tent. We were the first people to put up the tent so we went and helped other mates.
Our second activity was Hangi Prep with Ms Tito and Mrs Ryan. Hangi Prep was one of my favorite activities for that day. It was cool because I got to see Toko, Tama, Piri, Tainui and Tom dig the pit and sterilise the baskets. The flame was very big it was about to burn the tarpolin that they had put down for the dirt.
My best activity was kayaking. When I saw the kayaks I was surprised because the last four years we have kayaks that cover your body. These kayaks were more open and could fit two people. Some of the kayaks were named Malibu Two - that means its for two people. We ended kayaking with a refreshing swim.
Overall my camp highlight was kayaking with Mr Burt. I got to steer Mr Burts boat and I really enjoyed it because Mr Malloy asked me to put it on high speed. The boat sped and splashed through the water. Camp TC was stupendous and I wish I could be here next year for camp.
