Year 8 Camp

Arriving at school bright and early on tuesday the 3rd of december year eights students went down to Rotorua for our end of the year camp to finish our last year here at Point England School. My Group I was in was called the demilicious I was in their with my classmates Ahsin and Studamyer. Getting onto the kiwi coach bus it was filled with year 8 boys. Giving our last waves to our teachers we were off on a long bus drive down the line. Heading around the corner Dillon started to play the guitar and we all sang songs.

Driving for a long period of time I started to get bored so I just sat there and waited for this long drive to finish. Arriving at Keswick christian camp we unloaded the bus and took our stuffs to our rooms. I was in a room with my class friends Jesiah, Ahsin and Stuadamyer. Unpacking our bags we went outside and had free time before we went off for a run through the forest.

Arriving at the place I was tired to run so I just kicked it at the back with my friends. Seeing my buddie run ahead of me I started to jog and I caught up to James. Gently jogging with James we were almost catching up to the front but then we both got tired so we waited for other to pass by. Catching our breath we ran and we caught lorenz down the hill so we stuck with him the whole way. Getting back to the campsite we had an opportunity to go for a swim in the lake.

On the next day we got up early and started our day. Walking in the dining room we made our own lunch and got ready. Getting onto the bus we went to do our first activity seeing a real geyser. After that we went to this place where they talk about the sheeps that live here in NZ. Watching all those sheep go up there it was funny and clever. Watching the guy talk about sheep he told a few people to come up on the stage to milk a cow. Max and waata were the brave ones that went for us.

Looking at waata go up he pretended his name was James so we all laughed and watched him milk the cow. After watching the show these brainy farm dogs came out and showed us some of their tricks they could do. After that activity we went on to the bus and went back to Keswick and did our Item practise for prize giving the following week.

After that we went up stairs of the dining room and watched a movie (Pitch Perfect).
Finally after that long day of activities we went to our rooms and went to sleep. On the third day of camp we got up bright and early to go for a walk around blue lake. It was a long walk around the lake but it was pretty cool talking to my mates the whole way. Finally after sore legs of walking a couple of kilometres we arrived at the blue lake where we got the opportunity to swim and bomb off the pontune.

So exhausted of walking everywhere we arrived back at the Keswick camp and rushed to the hot showers. Straight after a long hot shower Mrs langitupu told us to pack our togs because we're going to a nearby swimming pools.

Feeling so annoyed of wasting my time having a shower I just packed my togs incase I wanted to swim. Arriving at the Rotorua pools we had to listen to the instructor what we ain’t allowed to do and what we are allowed to do. Rushing to the 2m high pool the year 8 boys bombed in. Finally waiting for the lifeguard to open the mini trampoline we all jumped in. After a long day of walking and swimming we went back for dinner and to do our item practise.  

On the final day of camp we had a item by the International champion Choir group Richmond school. Straight after that beautiful Choir group finished we went back into our rooms and packed up our gear and loaded it back onto the bus before we left for the luge ride. So desperate to go on the luge we finally got there where we took our group photos. Finally reaching up top where the luge rides where we started to line up.

Watching all my mates drive past me looked so fun. Finally reaching the top of the line we hopped into a wet luge and started to drive. Heading down the hill Ahsin crashed right next to me so I tried to catch up but he was gone. After that fun experience for the first time We got into the bus and drove back to Auckland.
