Last week the year 8’s went on camp at Ngaruawahia Christian Youth Camp. Arriving at camp with joy and laughter hoping that it would be fun. The group I was in was Waingaro A, with some of my friends. To start off camp we went on a huuggee hike up through the mountain. It was very tiring, and long. After the long hike, I couldn’t wait to jump in the pool.
The highlight for me would have to be the flying fox. This is a long cable suspended above the ground. Attached to the cable is a place for you to hold on. One end is set high above the other end and when you grab on you slide, quickly, to the other end. At first I was scared but when I tried it I couldn’t wait to go on again. I was scared because I thought I was going to drop in the middle of the lake, luckily I didn’t. I wish to do it again.
The thing I didn’t like at camp was waking up early and going for runs. The first morning we ran, we had to do 3 laps around the campsite. It was very tiring I couldn’t be bothered to do the last one so I walked away. I was happy on the last morning because we didn’t get to go for a run, and we slept in a little longer.
The last day we had to clean our entire cabin and toilets. Time had past it was time to go back home. We were suprised when the teachers told us that we were going to the pools before heading back home. It was a lot of fun, especially the slides. Finally it was time to pack up and head back home. I couldn’t wait to sleep, cause I was really tired.
I was really happy when we got back to school, but sadly I had to wait for my bags because the other bus had broke down. Camp was pretty fun. I hope to go again and have more fun again.
