Sadia & Christian, Year 4 happy campers
On Wednesday 27th of May to Friday 29th May the Grade Fours went to Anglesea for their camp.
It took approximately 1 and 1/2 hours to get there by bus.
One the way there, everybody was excited and loud. However, on the way back everyone was quiet and tired!
The activities were: fishing, canoeing, the giant swing, surfing and also orienteering. Fishing was about patience, not many of us caught a fish but we had fun.
Canoeing was fun because we had to go UNDER bridges and we had to lie down on our backs to make it under, also your arms got really sore!
The Giant Swing was 18m high and when you pull the string it feels like it snaps and then it swings you. Orienteering was where you had to find letters and clues for stuff, it was very fun and you had to do a lot of work.
Surfing was really good. You went to the beach and tried to catch a wave, then stand up. They are all the activities at camp.
The food was delicious. On the first night we had fried rice and chicken and dessert was ice-cream with chocolate topping. For breakfast we had fruit-salad, yoghurt, toast or cereal. We had burritos for lunch on Thursday and pasta with garlic bread for dinner. We also got pannacotta for dessert. On the last day for lunch we had burgers made from turkey or ham.
On Friday we had a surprise, it was a beach carnival and the teams were black, pink, green, red, purple, and pink. The activities were digging the biggest hole, showing tennis balls with material on the back through hoops, filling a bucket of water up the quickest and then tug of war. In the end, black team won!
We had a great time on camp. We were sad to leave but at the same time happy to see our families again on Friday!
