On Tuesday the 3rd of December, the year 8’s from Pt. England School went on their camp to Keswick (Pronounced Kesick) down out Rotorua. Obviously it was a long trip to get there, but I knew that it was going to be worth it because I was with my friends and the activities were going to be awesome.
As soon as we got there, we had to go on a nature walk up this hill. It was the most tiring thing of my life, but I knew that it was going to be good pre-season training and get some fitness in my body. I was running with my friend Kingston P, all the way up, and all the way down. I had a lot of fun doing that run.
My second most favourite part of the whole camp, was going to the Rotorua Aquatic Centre. When we got there, the lifeguard said that there was a 2 metre pool that we could go and bomb in, but me and my friends didn’t go there first. At first, me and my friend Samuela went to the shallow pool. Just to get warmed up. After a while, I told my friend that we should go check out how cool the deep pool was. I did one bomb and after that I was sucked in.
My favourite part of the whole camp was going to the Skyline and Luge rides. That was fun for me because I believe that I was fast and that I could beat everyone. I got 4 rides. In the first ride, I got in my luge and raced to catch up to the other people in front of me. 1 by 1 I caught up to every single one that went before me. My favourite part of the whole trip was the last luge ride we had. There were 4 of us on the last ride and we had enough luge rides to block up the whole lane. We were having so much fun, and it was a fun trip.
The camp was very fun and I am going to miss all the year 8’s.
