Arriving at school Arriving at camp Mt Pauanui and First night
Overnight Camp Rocky Shore and Estuary Mini Golf, Kayaking and Snorkelling
Orienteering Camp Concert and Packing up
I had just came back from Auckland and I was very
tired. I arrived at school and I saw my friends, I was
talking to them about camp. I wasn’t too excited about
going. But then I got more eager after we went to the
roll call. All of the names got called and I went into Mr
Scrimgeour’s car. The people in Mr Scrimgeour’s car
was me, Eli, Harry and Darren. It was a fun ride up
because me and Eli kept ourselves entertained.
We arrived at camp and it didn’t look like the worst
camp. We went into the dining room and that looked
good. There was plenty of space in there. Then we
rushed to get a good sleeping spot, I got the top
bunk. It was cool because we could see everyone,
there was 4 rows of 12 in one room. I was close to
Jerram, PJ, Kane, Eli and Kiko. After that we were all
settled in. Suddenly we got told we were to walk up
Mt Pauanui. So then we got ready for that.
So we got ready to go on our big walk. First of all we
had to walk a long way to get to the Mountain. We
then had a rest and got prepared to tramp up Mt
Pauanui. So we set off, I was with the leading pack.
It seemed like it was never ending, my legs got tired
and I was getting very annoyed. It just kept going on
and on until we could see some light and some
rocks. We had finally got there! I was stoked, I sat at Lets play
on a rock, I gulped down my water and I looked at some rat-
the brilliant view. Then it was all fun from their, we a-tat cat
sprinted down the mountain and we were sliding
down the dirt. We finally got to the bottom and a
juicy piece of watermelon.
We arrived at the camp and all had showers and got
ready for dinner. We had cold meat and vegetables.
Finally it was time for bed. We all got into our
sleeping bags and chatted away. The teachers kept
checking up on us. But then we went to sleep.
Suddenly at dinner we got told we have to go
to overnight camp. So we got packed and got
ready to go in the morning. We drove by bus
to get to the camping site. When we got
there we set up our tents. I was sharing a
tent with Jerram and Eli. Immediately we
went on a walk and had a swim and the
creek. The current was very strong there. We
got back and played some games, I played
cricket. After that we made our dinner and
desert. We had a billy stew and pancakes.
We then had a talent quest and then played
spotlight. Later on we went to sleep. I got a
cold and a sore back while I was sleeping. In
the morning we went for a walk to the weta
caves. There were so many wetas. So that
was overnight camp.
We set off to the rocky shore. We got there
and their was a lot of rocks. We saw Shrimp,
Limpets, Barnacles, Lizards, Starfish and
Crabs. We had to study the creatures. We
then went to the Estuary and had a good
swim. It was very refreshing. After those
activities we went back to camp and just
chilled out. We also had a nice dinner which
was hamburgers and fries and the desert was
a flavoured mousse.
This day was the best day. First of all
we went to mini golf. My score was 60
and that score got me in second place
out of me, Jerram, Eli, Kiko. We then
went to kayaking and for some reason
the instructor didn’t like me. Anyway, I
was a pretty good kayaker. Next we
walked back to camp and a sandwiches
for lunch. After that we walked back to
the Estuary and snorkelled right by the
shore. It wasn’t that great because we
swam right by the shore only to see
sand and rocks. Overall that concludes
the best day of the week.
Orienteering was the worst day for me.
Because my group was always wining except
for Liam, Jayden went wandering and we
came last. We had a brilliant start and then
we went bad because the wining part of the
group got a joy ride. So at the end of the
day I got ready for the Concert. The reason
I have not much to say is because the day
Our group were practising our lip sink with
the song Hot ‘ n’ Cold by Katie Perry. The
members of my group were Jerram and Eli
(main lip sinkers), me and Kiko (dancers)
and Darren (fake guitar player). We went
up and everyone said were the best and the
funniest. After that we went to sleep and
we got ready to leave in the morning.
Finally it was sunrise and we loaded our
stuff on to the buses and we went back to
Fairfield Intermediate. Overall the camp
was a 6/10 for me. So that means it was
