On the 2nd day of camp there were lots of activities.
I did BMX for my 3rd activity and it was my 2nd favourite activity. Mr Fawcett took a photo of me when I went down the hill very fast. I didn’t fall off the BMX.
The BMXs were easy for me, but I went pretty slow up the big hill.
I liked doing the BMX.
I walked around to the University on Saturday evening to watch the nightglow and fireworks. I thought they were starting at 8:30pm to match up with Earthhour, but when I got there they’d already started.
If you didn’t see the display here’s a short video (actually it’s quite long and may take some time to load).
At Camp my group was the SUPER STARS.
On Thursday at Camp Karakariki I went kayaking. First I got my togs on and got my towel. Then I walked to the kayaks through a gate. It took about five minutes. I was nervous because I thought that I was going to fall in. I was excited. I put on a lifejacket. Mrs Tooley gave me a paddle. We practiced rowing out of the water. Then I got in the kayak with Mrs Tooley. I got wet, but I didn’t fall in.
I liked kayaking. It was fun.
Last Wednesday I went to Camp Karakariki.
I went to kayaking with my group the ALL STARS. Mrs Tooley told us to get a paddle and find a space. Mrs Tooley showed us how to move the paddle. Then we tried. After that we got our life jacket on.
Then we got in the KAYAK. I was a little wobbly in my kayak. My dad in the rowboat helped me to stop wobbling in my kayak. Then I got a lot better at it.
Then Mrs Tooley said to come in and Bria and Levi’s mum’s boat nearly sank.
Kayaking was fun.
