Kayla reflects on Day One Camp Kindness

Today was the first day of Pt England School's year 5/6 and 7 camp of 2010.I thought everyone was going to be really excited and and couldn't wait . Most people have done this before, but I haven't so I was super excited. As we walked in the line to go to cooking, it was only the girls so I thought it would be so cool. We made Lamingtons! We were rolling them in coconut bits in the tray, and just looking at it made me want to grab it all and just nibble on it. I bet everyone else did!

Walking on the hot green grass, thinking "What's going to happen when everyone starts kyaking?" As Mr Burt was talking , everybody sitting on the rocky hard sand, I could see the boys really wanted to just jump in! But no, they had waited till they got choosen.When I was in the kiak I got really scared that I was going to flip right over when the murky waves came rolling past. SPLASH!!!I hear as I come past when Hilary flips her kiak in the water .She asks me to hop in too. I said no ."I dont want to get into that salty green water "I told Hilary as I paddled away.

After we walked back throught the gusting wind, talking away, we finally got back to our fine school ready to have our lunch. With all the cooking that the children made, and fruit that we brought, everyone had something.

Then after lunch we gathered our bags and packed them into our tents before we left to play games. I set up my sleeping bag and I had to be in the middle so that was a bit upsetting but it's ok I guess.

Later on we're going to the Glen Innes pools to have a swim and then have a shower. Then after that we will walk back.

Hi Kayla.
When I was reading the paragragh about lamingtons, my tummy started to rumble and I had to pause then read on. Your kayaking description was really facinating. I liked the way how you explained the part when you got tipped over (no offence).

Hi Kayla, Great recount of your day. It is my first time at Pt England for camp and I am excited to see what you did today and how you liked it. Lamingtons, wow how delicious. I was at Tamaki Intermediate when the wind came up and the clouds went black
and I thought of the people kayaking. You obviously survived the wind and had fun. What is going to happen tomorrow? Can't wait to read the next posts.

Wow Kayla

What a very nice story you wrote, you must have had fun on Camp Kindness. What did you do on camp? My guess is that on the second day you went to skating, rock climbing, and also ten pin bowling. Keep up the good work!
