Have you been to Kawau Island? The year 6 campers went to Kawau island on the 17th of November. Every year the year 6’s go camp at Kawau Island. We stay there for 4 days and 3 nights.
On the first day of camp it was exciting. We all meet in the hall around 7:00pm.The teams were called Kat's, Kawau, Bentzon and mention. First we went on a long ride on the bus and loaded our bags on. Once the bus had stop at sandpit we had a little break before we went on the ferry. We had our morning tea and then made a line to carry the bags from the bus to the ferry. When we get on, we went up stairs so we can sit on top of the ferry.
When we arrived to Kawau Island we lift all the bags on the deck then we went for a long walk up steep hills and killer hill. Before we get half way my legs started to get tried. We stop at this big hill of rocks so Hendrix can says his speak. This rock hill his been growing since. Once he had finished his speaks we take another long walk until we stop at this big field near the sea. We played there and eat our lunch there. It take 30 minutes until we get back to the cabins. Some games we had played was bulrush and throw the farthers in the water.
I was in Yvonne, Venetia, Lani and Rosalina cabin. We had a five beds cabin and one cupboard .When I wake up Yvonne and Venetia were fast asleep, the other two were talking with me. It was the first day of the actives and my team Kawua went bivouacking. bivouacking is building a houses with your team. We went off and started looking for some wood and leaf to cover the house. We collected all the wood and leaf we need and build our house. It was halfway finished so we collected more and more wood and leaf. We added more wood on the house and we were done.Then we went to our next actives as time went past it was morning tea.
When I woke up it was early and it was my 11th birthday. They song happy birthday to me at breakfast time.Plus it was concert night .During that night some people won some award. We all finished our item and it was time for the judges to announce the winners. The winning team was mention. My team come 3rd places which was great.
We eat our last breakfast and went off to brush our teeth. We clean our room and put up our beds. We play a little actives before we went. When the fairy arrived we loaded our bags on the fairy and said goodbye to peter and Erin which are the owner of the camp.
We had fun on the last day and I hope to stay there for a little more days. The best part of all was sleeping with my friend, playing with my classmate and doing no work. Also I learn how to do thing that I don't know how to do such as sailing and being a leader for my team. I was glad coming back to see my family but I would rather stay at kawau Island with my friends and teacher.
