Abseiling

 

With my strong arms I climbed up an unstable wall. I went up even more. Everyone was cheering.  I went to the top. I had a bit of trouble because my boxers gave me a painful wedgie. Then the man said “Go down a different wall.” 

There, I’m going down. I was jumping like a serious ninja. Mr Fawcett said “Photo, photo!”  I looked terrible because my butt looked big. When I went down I felt sick like a monkey and my knees felt like jelly.

When I looked at the photo yesterday Mr Fawcett was laughing. I didn’t mind because I was laughing too.

A Good Night’s Sleep?

Camp on Google Maps

Miss B. said goodnight and the parents did too. Miss B. was next to the girls’ dormitory. She must have really good hearing because if you make a slight whisper she will be in.

It’s really cramped and squishy.  There were suitcases on the ground and if you rolled over you would be laying on one of your friends.  It was really hard to get a good night’s sleep.  People were getting up and going to the toilet. People were wriggling around (trust me, when you move the mattress makes a pretty loud noise). Eventually you will fall asleep.

The annoying part is you can’t get a sleep in.  The first one awake will wake up a friend so they’re not bored and then they will start talking and wake everyone up.

At seven in the morning Miss B. will come in and tell us to get up.  We have thirty minutes to get ready.  Then we go outside, do a head count and the teachers will pick the best line.  We go in one line at a time to have breakfast.  It was scrambled eggs and toast for me.

Camp Concert

Another group on stage

Another group on stage

At night time at Camp Waitawheta we did our Camp Concert performance.  Ella, Charli, Jade and me did a cheerleading routine.  We wore make up.

Ella and Charli and Jade and me sat still and waited. Miss B. picked us and said, “You can get up now.” I was embarrassed.  When we were going on stage I was scared.  I was shaking.

When it was Aslan’s turn he played the Frozen Song on the old, out of tune piano. He played really well. I was so happy. It made me smile. He had 10 out 10, 10 out of 10, 10 out of 10 and 10 out of 10 from the judges. So he had 40 points.  We clapped so loudly.
