Yr 8 Leader Ship Camp

Fun activities, delicious food and spending time with friends, is what the year eight students of Point England did on the last week of term one. They went to Marsden Bay for memorable 3 days of Leader Ship camp.

After a very mundane bus trip from Point England School to Marsden Bay we had finally reach our destination. While we unloaded the buses the owner of the camp site and his wife came and introduced themselves to everyone their names are Michael and Gina. The next part of our arrival was to tour the camp site so that we knew where everything was.

Until it started raining, everyone started sprinting because we had forgotten to take our bags inside and by the time we got there almost everything was wet. Then we saw our got into our cabins and put all our gear inside. Next we played our first game which was something like guiding a blind snake, there was a leader in front who guided everyone who had a blindfold on. That wasn't really my favourite game because my team lost.

We had a lot of activities but I have to say my favourite was the water slide because it was really fun and all of my friends had fun as well. To make our selves go faster on the water slide we had to use a bar of soap my team used about three bars of soap and nearly two bottles of shampoo. Some of us had made a human chain which made us go even faster.

My second favourite would have been going on the kayaks, the only stink thing was that it was really cold. We went under bridges and had a backwards race where the winner would get an extra serving of dessert, I won so I got the extra dessert. After that my friends Promise, Taunese and I had tipped Miss Berry's kayak over and next thing she new was that she was cold, wet and swimming in the pond.

The thing I can't stop thinking about is all the FOOD we had cereal, toast and Milo for breakfast, cookies, fruit and a drink of water for lunch and for dinner we had delicious butter chicken with rice. My favourite would have to be the lasagne it was nice and cheesy with yummy hot mince and pasta. For dessert we had Ice cream with wafers and peaches and chocolate mouse.

Camp was really fun it was probably the best camp I've been to and I wish I could go again.
