Sailing a water activity I mostly enjoyed with my group mates at camp. On my first go at sailing I didn’t know how to sail properly because it was the first time for me to start sailing. Before we were ready to get on our sail boat Peter the sailor instructor gave us some basic things to do while we our out enjoying our sailing. 1, when you are sitting on the boat you have to face your back to where the wind is coming from. I was a solar sailor which means sailing by your self. There was one thing I had trouble with and that was tipping over on my sail. Even though I didn’t know how to sail, I still enjoyed it.
Orientering a game that just amazed me!!. Walking in the woods trying to find the letters was just awesome because to me it was just like hiking the big hills. It took us about 20 to 25 minutes max to figure out the whole word for the game. At the end our group unscrambled the word and the word was four things that go on water that had something to do with camp.. The four things was raft, diggey, optimise and kayaking. Our team was really happy that we unscrambled the words because it was a really challenging game.
Swimming at camp was nice because the weather at Kauwau was a bit hot and we deserved the swim. It was really fun swimming with my friends because jumping off the pontoon together and doing silly faces was excellent. It was so fun that I wanted to stay in the water for a bit longer but I couldn't. Do you love swimming...?
I was hoping to stay at Kauwau Island for a few more days.

There is going to be a FANTASTIC! trip to a Island that the year 6’s in Pt England School is going to. Do you know which Island we are going to? Well let me tell you it is........ Kawau Island and I am so excited.
I am so fulled up with excitements because I am looking forward to visit this Island. Waiting for the big day on the 15, of November 2011 which is tomorrow is so awesome for me. Can’t you wait for the big day to come?
There are some things that I am hoping to do at Camp Benzon. 1, getting to hiking the high mountains every day. 2, playing rugby and football and 3 sailing with my friend to survivor Island and doing some fun activities there.
Doing the amazing activities and enjoying it with your friends will be up to the weather because if it raining we might be doing less games. If it sunny is will be just a awesome time spending at the island and enjoying. I hope the 4 days that we are there it would just be beautiful and sunny.
Camp Benzon sounds awesome and I can't wait to be there.
