Camp - By Mele
On Wednesday it was our first day of camp and it was so exciting. When the bell rang we had to line up in front of our class. But this time we didn't wait for anyone to get into the line and it was a miracle because nobody was talking but the people who were nervous. When we got into the hall we got into our teams which were the Super Chargers, Fully Charged, True Crew, All Stars and the Responstars. Our team leaders were standing at the front of our team lines trying to get the people quite and into their lines.
On our fist day of camp some people were very excited. Some people looked like they did not want to come to camp and the team leaders were trying to get people who were still talking to close there mouth so that we could get onto the camp activities at some point. When it was quiet Miss Garden started telling us what we are going to do when we get out of the hall. Miss Garden told us that our first activity was at the swimming pool at YMCA.
My highlight was Kayaking with Mr Burt.We had to walk over to the Point England reserve.
When we got there Mr Burt and his helpers Feki and Joe showed us how to get into the kayak. Our instructions were foot bottom foot. When Feki and Joe finished Showing us and telling us the instruction they showed us something diffrent from last year camp, it was a double kayak and it could fit two people. Finally it was time to get into the water. The water was so cold that I wanted to get out but we weren't aloud to. While we were waiting for our turn we had stay in the water so that we could get use to the cold water when it is our turn in the Kayak. Finally I got a turn I first went on with Maru. Maru was in the front so that means that she had to lead but I could choose where to go. When we had to turn around the pole it was a bit scary but I managed to get it right. When it was time to get out it was freezing like we just finished eating heaps and heaps of ice blocks. I had heaps of fun kayaking and I can't wait until we go kayaking next year on camp.
