Camp Reflection

Reflection for Camp

My goal for camp was to not be afraid in the caves.

I achieved this because I was not so afraid in the caves even when I saw the wetas.

Something I was pleased with was that everyone had a brilliant time and enjoyed it.
                            
because it looked like everyone was happy in everything we did.
I really enjoyed learning about the Kiwi
                  
because I  did not know much about the kiwi before.
Something I found hard was trying to squeeze through all of the gaps in the caves.
Something that made me think was that  what were the boys doing on the ipads.
                  because they were hoping in there  sleeping bags and pretending to sleep walk..
· My top 5 favourite things about camp were:

Favourite Things
Reason Why
1. Kayaking
Because it is one of my favourite things to do.
2. Caving
Because that was my first time ever in a cave.
3. Confidence Course
.
Because there were lots of really hard and challenging  things.
4. Master chef
Because we got to experience what it was like to be on Master chef.
5. Amazing Race
Because there were heaps of clues that we had to figure out by ourselves.

Amazing Race Day 4!!!!!





Day 4 :
For day four we did the Amazing Race.
We got given heaps of clues I think the amount of clues we got were 6.
When we Henry and I were on the kayaks we had gotten the wrong clue from Miss Patel so we had to do another course on the confidence course.



Moment In Time:

I run. I stop. I take the next clue.
“Ok” I said to henry “ We need to go down by the confidence course and go down to where the kayaks are”.
So we race down a slippery muddy hill to the courts.
Then “ CRASH” I slip over in the middle of the hill.
I try and catch up to everyone. I think to myself “ No One even notices I am gone so I better run as fast as I can”.
I finally catch up to them.
We run to the kayaks. Henry and I get into a double Kayak.
I try to push us in , we finally the kayak makes it in the water.
I paddle hard. Trying to reach  the end of  the lake where  the clue lies in Miss Patel’s hand. “ It’s the final clue” I say to myself.
We reach and take the clue out of Miss Patel’s hand.
Henry and I struggle to get out of the sandy part of the lake because it is real shallow.
We get out. We paddle as hard as we can.
Henry and I get there faster than the time it took us to get to Miss Patel.
I take the clue out of my life jacket then I take the jacket off and then I run up to the courts and I tear the top off the clue.
I read the clue out and it ended up to be the second to last clue.
So I tell Mrs H  in the dining room and she says that
we have to go across the wire bridge in the Confidence Course.
So we run and we weave in and out of all the other courses.
Finally at last we reach the Wire Bridge  , we made it fast.
I run across the bridge and then I climb up the muddy hill while holding onto the rope with the team behind me.
We reach the top and Mr.M said  “ Well Done , You have reached the end of the Amazing Race”. He gave us the final clue.
We open it and it said  “ To go back to the dining room”.
So we race back to the dining room and I  am glad that everyone had a fantastic time.

Day 2:
For day two we had a really difficult challenge. We had to do Master chef.
We made Brunch , Lunch , Dinner and Dessert it was fun and we also had a limit of time. In that time we had to make our first meal which was brunch.
We had to present it nicely and we had to make it so they could taste the flavour. For brunch we made Chocolate Hot cakes with grated chocolate and Golden Syrup. For Lunch we made a sausage sizzle with spaghetti and cheese. The dinner was a bit hard but we made it and for dinner we made Potato Chips , Savoury Meat Patties and noodles with peas and bread. The dessert, , The dessert was fun and the name of our restaurant thing was :  Kaitawa Express. For dessert we had made Orange jello, Chocolate Pudding , Pineapple and Peaches. It was delicious.

Moment:
I rush into the kitchen dying to get the cup that we needed to pour the egg into. I say to Bree Peel the potatoes while I peel the carrots. “ If we do not start dinner now we will not have dinner ready in time for us and the judges to taste our wonderful dinner” I say to Bree. “ Can you go and cut the potatoes into chips while I go and see how the boys are doing on lunch please” Bree said to me. So Bree goes and checks on the boys to see how their doing.
I start on chopping up the potatoes into small thin pieces.
Then Bree comes back with the boys behind her. I say to Henry “ How did the sausages go are they burnt?”. “No they are not burnt” he said back to me.
We plate up everything with excitement. I get the judges ready and I plate up everyone elses. Then we eat. “ Now it is time to take up our dish” I thought in my mind. So I take the dish up to the judges and overall we got a six from both judges. I thought we still did good though.

Here Is Bree and me :

Day Three:

For day Three we went to the One-Poto caves where we were going to do caving.
It was so much fun and I thought it was so funny when Ellis threw a mud ball at my face then I threw one into his mouth.
It was really fun that day!!!!!



Moment in time:
I look around and all I can see is rocks and wetas. I am surrounded by them.
Hannah behind me says “ You should lookout Lily because someone just said there is mud ahead”.
So I turn my head torch on and look around for the mud then I look up to look
up at the wetas and then “Squash” “ I have crawled into the mud”  I say to  myself.
Then Hannah Crawls into the mud and all I could hear was “ Ooo” “ Lily I have crawled into the mud”.
I say in my mind “ Ahh” “ She survived , She's tough”.



“Bang” I hit my head on the rock. “ Not bad enough to cry”.
Then I crouch and crawl under a really tight squeeze rock. “Ouch” I say.
I squeeze out of the tight rock. Then I take my hand and place it on a rock so I can get a grip to pull myself up on the other rock.
I get out of the whole thing then my foot slips.
Bridget says to me “Be careful. Turn around and put your foot on the ladder and then climb down it. I reach the end. I set foot on the ground.
I think it was Sam  , anyway  someone shouted out “ Lily slide down the big mud slide. So I cannot believe I am doing this but I am going to slide down it.
I slid down it.



I line up for the next cave and then I saw that Ellis had slid down.
So I start to throw heaps of mud balls then I got Ellis in the stomach.
Then I start to go up the next cave and then Ellis threw a mud ball at my face so I threw one in his mouth. Mrs H says  “stop throwing mud balls” and I start to concentrate on my climbing.
I gently got a grip on the rock. I push. I look and what I see was amazing. It was , the view. It was beautiful. I take a second to look.
“Lily , Lily” I thought someone  was calling my name . “What” I say anxiously”. Then I realise that I was daydreaming. I look behind my shoulder.
It seemed like this was the most fun our class had ever had. I thought “ This is an amazing experience and I hope that we would be able to come back again soon”.




Carrying on , I get my foot stuck in one of the mud piles in the cave.
“Eww” I say as I try get out of this.
I step on the last rock in the last cave.
“ This is it I say , the last cave” I step out of the cave as I walk towards the shelter.
We sing. We enjoy it.
“ Come on the bay , Clap , Come on the bay , Black , White alright” .
We say our last words at the cave.“ Come On The Bay” We finish.

Day One:
For day one my favourite thing was to do the night detectives
because it was fun and it was a challenging Challenge because we missed one clue and another team was catching up with us!!! But it was so amazing.
I learnt it is not to win it is to have heaps and heaps of FUN!!!!!

Moment:
Looking around all I Can see is darkness , twigs and branches.
Trying to find the second clue is hard but me and my crew make it through.
I see something it was a clue  , Bree our leader does not see it so she thinks the third clue is the second. I say to one of our teammates who is behind me “ I think we might of missed a clue Isn't it supposed to  be Michael Noonan Welcomes not Michael Welcomes”. But I do not think he or she believes me , so I just leave it for now.
I flick my torch on so I can see where I am going. We keep on walking. I scuffle through the bushes. Twigs , Branches , poking me as I walk.
I am feeling scared. Frightened. I can feel the Rain dripping on my nose as I walk down a Muddy , Slippery small dip. I fall. The ground felt wet and the mud felt squashy and gooey.  Then I Rushed out of the bushes when I saw the road and Mrs Hill.

This is us at the end:
