Camp! Room 22 and Room 23 (my class) went to the South Island! We stayed in Nelson, from Monday 10 October to Friday 14, in the Rotoiti Lodge, a super nice place that was very close to Lake Rotoiti
I was in Cabin D with Annabelle, Jiya, Sophie, and Izzy N. The cabins were really nice! I had a lot of fun sharing the cabin with my friends, what with all the talking, dancing, and sleeptalking *cough* Annabelle *cough*
Low ropes was when you had to make your way across the obstacles with your team. All the challenges involved a lot teamwork, especially when people were blindfolded! My favourite part was the rope ladder, where one person climbed up a rope ladder, while everyone else held a net to catch them. I managed to honk the horn at the top of the ladder!
I had no idea what flying kiwi was, but when I got there, I couldn’t wait to get on! Being lifted into the air by your team while swinging around is like nothing else, it’s so much fun! I loved the view of the lake and the trees. Flying kiwi was the best!
I quite liked the honeydew walk, because I got to try honeydew for the first time, and it was quite short. Whiskey Falls was pretty long, and unfortunately it was raining when I went, which meant that it was very muddy and wet. I still had fun talking to my friends though, and Whiskey Falls was pretty cool
My second favourite part of camp! Animal survivor is basically the Hunger Games, except you don’t kill people, and you have different ranks, and you can only eat the ranks below you. I was a herbivore, which meant I couldn’t eat anyone, but everyone except fellow herbivores could eat me. Running around in the bush with my classmates was so much fun, and I managed not to lose any lives 🙂
I loved camp. The beautiful, peaceful scenery, the super-awesome activities, the great memories, everything. Camp was the BEST.
