Our wonderful time at Kawau Island!

It was the time of the year we Y6 students once again have loads of fun at Camp Bentzon.

Last week the Y6 student would set off to other places, This time we went to a much more better place in Kawau Island at Camp Bentzon. Along came Erin and Peter they were the managers of the Camp. "Hi guys" they said in a loud and happy voice "HI!" we replied back
they started to explaining and telling us about Camp Bentzon and a little bit about Kawau Island.

After that day every morning we would all wake really early like at 7:30 and get dressed and ready to go for a run through the bushes. When Mr J blow his bugle we had to go and sit on the deck. 

The worst thing every morning for me was when we had to go for a run. We went up some stairs then go through some obstacles then the trickiest part came we went down a steep hill on the first day I was struggling but the the teachers were there helping us then I got through all that.

My best highlight for me at Camp was SAILING......
This was my best highlight because I enjoyed controlling the sail and seeing Hinkley and Rayton sink but they luckily survived.

My scariest highlight at Camp was ABSEILING.....
This was my scariest highlight because when we had to put our heels on the edge of the wall then lean back, I felt like I was going to fall back and hit the ground but luckily I had a rope attached and I went down really fast and I didn't get windburn at all.

Camp Bentzon ROCKS!
