Kayaking at Camp Karakariki

Kayaking at Camp

Way back in Term 1 we went to Camp Karakariki and went kayaking.  It was the Camp Rock Stars last activity of the day.

First we had to practice with our oar.  I was the first kid to get in the kayak.  I was in a single.

There was a tree stump in the middle of the water and we were only allowed up to there.

Then it was time to go, so we went back to camp and then we went on the playground.

Kayaking in the Muddy Water

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.

Kayaking at Camp Karakariki

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.
