Year five Camp!
Who: Year fives Brightwater school
When: November 6th - November 11th
Where: Marahau outdoor education centre
Why: I don't really know why
What: On the first day we got told our cabin and who's in them with you.
While we were at camp we got heaps of free time so most of the people were playing cards or reading or doing other stuff.
We had our own teams and the winning team get's their prize today I think.
There were heaps of different teams like The Unknown Smurfs, The Happy Campers ( they made their own t-shirts),
The Rebels,The Beach Balls and my team was The Screaming Unicorns. Richard De Hamel came to talk to us about fishing and we got to go fishing or build a shelter or make a trap or start a fire.
We spent most of the day with him then after afternoon tea he did a puppet show for us. It was about a fish talking to a scallop eating plankton then a starfish wanted to eat the scallop but he got away, then the fish was talking to crab and a octopus came and tryed to eat the crab but he got away. Anyway I'm not going to talk about the other days apart from Thursday and Friday and the activities that we did because they were so fun. The activities were orienteering, making damper, observational drawing, kayaking and paddle boarding. On Thursday we went on a boat and went to Adele island, Split apple rock and apple tree bay were we went on the 2 hour walk back to camp. On Friday we roasted marshmallows and played spotlight.
