Year 6 camp recount

Walt: write a recount about camp

Rode a big black bus for over an hour north. There was sleepwalking , movies , action , adventure , darkness, and dirt all in just four days. What an unbelievable camp we had.

On the last morning , I was out of bed and down the stairs the problem was I was sleepwalking. My friends tried to wake me up. It was a bad idea. My friend lied and said I rubbed moisturiser all over my bed but when I was sleepwalking she got up and did it. Luckily I only went to the toilet and then back to bed. I don’t want to do that again.

Abseiling was my biggest fear because of the height. When I was climbing up the wall I was afraid then while I did it a burst of exhilaration rode up me like a car. It was such an amazing experience  I decided the I would go another without any fear.

At the start I didn't know what was happening then I saw the blindfolds. The Burma trail is when you are blindfolded then a long rope is tied to trees and then while blindfolded you go through the trail. For me especially it was hard and eventually at the end I managed to kiss 3 trees , hug 10 and I tripped slipped or fell 12 times.

My favourite memory about camp bentzon was you have to rely on your group to help you along the way. The best socializing activity at the camp is probably raft building because everyone is helping and talking.This camp on kawau island was one of the best experiences I have had in my life so if I ever get the chance to go back there I’d surely be there.

In this task we learnt to write recounts about camp bentzon. At camp bentzon we had an awesome time on this awesome island. I can't wait till I get older and read back at this.
