Camp 2017 Recount

Yr 7/8 Camp 2017!!!


When we first arrived at school we got all of our bags and put them in front of the hall with the boys stuff on one side and the girls stuff on the other, I was nervous but excited to leave. Then we said goodbye to our parents and went  to talk to all of our friends since we were so excited. After that we headed into the hall where we had to get the roll call, Once that was done we then needed to pack our luggage into the bus, so we all lined up with our luggage as the dads help load everything in the bus. Then we picked the bus we wanted to go on and we sat next to our friends.


The bus took off and we were on our way to PSYV (Peter Snell Youth Village). The bus ride was pretty boring but we found ways to entertain ourselves by playing Yellow car, talking and there were a few sleeping. It took about 2 hours to get there but it didn't seem like 2 hours it felt like a short bus ride because of the fun we had with our friends.


Once we had arrived at Peter Snell Youth Village, we had a quick meeting about the rules and the things we were going to do while we were at camp but once the meeting was over we went to our cabins and settled in. Riley was in cabin 5, Tayla was in cabin 11 and Jodie was in cabin 4.  Then we unpacked all of our things we went outside and had lunch, After lunch we got ready for our first activity by putting on sunblock and our hats and we walked off to our activity. There were 7 activities for all the 7 groups, Confidence course, Intivative course, Rock climbing, Archery, Rifles, Hobo stoves and Masterchef. When everyone had finished their activities for the day we had dinner which was spaghetti with corn and coleslaw. Then we went of the water slide which was super fun because it went super fast. Every other day expect Thursday was pretty much the same doing all of the activities.



Talent Quest
On Wednesday night is when everyone did the talent quest and the activity group dances, everyone sat in the hall and Mr Fourie explained how everything was going to work/happen. We first started with the talent quest and there were so many different acts including Singing,Dancing,Skits,Magic cards tricks and more

Adventure Park


Thursday came along and everyone was super excited as we went to Silverdale adventure park, At the adventure park there were lots of things to do like the big kids playground, Zipline, Luge, Shooting Star (Vertical Bungy), 7D cinema, Tube slide and the Spaceship.
After having time going on all the rides it was time for lunch at the adventure park we got a choice of a beef or chicken burger with fries and your own choice of canned drink eg: Coke, Fanta ,Sprite,L&P. Once we finished we had a little bit more time to go on all the rides, and then it was time to head back to the camp site.


Y - Games


The Y-Games was a big competition where all of the 7 groups + the parents versed in several challenges. Everyone in each group got number 1-12 and the we began the Y-Games. There were lots of different challenges like Guess the song, Trivia, Guess the chip or biscuit and etc. One of our favourite games was the WWE because Riley and I (Tayla) had Logan in our team and we won around 200 points! After a good 3-4 hours we came to a winner, The winners were IT and since they won they got Donuts.


Last Day


The morning of the last was amazing. We all got to sleep in and there wasn’t a morning run. The only downside was when Mr Munro and Mr Fourie came in and wet us with water guns! We had breakfast as usual and then got ready for the day ahead. The rest of the day was clean up and doing our duties that we signed up for. We also did the Top class event. Room 8 won and we were a close second.


After top class event we packed all our gear and the girls got ready for the big surprise. The girls were going to wet Mr Fourie as payback for all the morning water gun wetting. Finally the time came, we had our water bottles ready and Gail had her big bucket filled with water. Mr Fourie got soaked with water and it was super funny. At last the day had come to an end. Camp was over and we were soon on the bus on our way home. Most people fell asleep on the bus and it was very quiet.

We arrived back at school and met up in Room 7. We had a pizza lunch and we each got a choice of our on canned drink. Then we had free time and played games until our parents picked us up.
