Having a Humorous Time At Camp Bentzon

In the very recent past, all the year sixes attended to go to Camp Bentzon along with some parent helpers and teachers. Well not all the year sixes went, but we arrived to Kawau Island with a yawn and a sigh. I was really tired from waking up at 6:30AM! I was happy to be at Kawau Island already.

Now, I am tell you about my FAVOURITE activity! Well there was the Burma Trail, we built a hut, Sailing, kayaking, KAYAKING!!......... Ever tried it before? Well it was my favorite activity. It was called Stingray Bay and it also was rocky and sandy until we found a hole that looked really magical. It wasn’t magical but it was a very important hole on the island that was made by some men in the olden days. It is a long story. It WAS AMAZING! To be inside a really dark and important hole.

My second favorite activity is going to Abseiling with Kawau A, Mr Somerville and Rodney ( Marvin’s dad) I felt really scared as soon as I saw a big looking Abseiling Wall. Everyone made it back down and we were all proud of ourselves. Especially those who didn’t want to do it. I felt really happy after making it back down.

In third place, was having a really good time of laughter doing the Burma Trail. We had to find a partner, then one partner had to be blind folded and follow the long rope. We also had to listen to what the other partner was telling us to do. I felt really trapped after MR SOMERVILLE kept tricking me. It was so funny because I gave him his payback when it was his turn. I had a TREMENDOUS TIME!

When ever it is free time, I always want to play my favorite sport which is VOLLEY - BALL!! My favorite thing doing in volley is spiking it and setting it over the net. I usually just want to have a humorous time.

MMMM....... “Time for mr Coup’s delicious food." We say. Mr Coup is a really good chef who can cook the most loveliest bread in the world. My favourite food for dinner was his Lasagna. We were just so happy to have him at Camp Bentzon. My wish was to have him as my GRANDPA!!

On the last night, we had a concert. It was a challenge between Kawau, Bentzon, Mansion, and Katz. Everyone participated in each group BUT!....... The group I was in had WON! I think we won the camp concert because we had a lot teamwork and courage. My best character was Tui because she was so funny acting as Sally Va’afusuaga. All of us had a cheerful laugh at her.

It was really sad to leave Kawau Island after all the great fun we had. The good news was that we got to see our parents and siblings again!! I was so sad because I didn't want to leave. All the year sixes will never forget Kawau Island. I have something to say. I just want to thank all the parent helpers, the teachers, and especially Mrs Flavelle organizing the wonderful Camp and for watching over us while we were there.

Thats a great recount there Hosanna. It really made me think back to my time there last year with Toreka and with Tanielu the year before. My favourite activity was kayaking as well. Isn't it great fun? My other favourite activity was eating Mr Coops freshly baked bread! What do you think about going there for our Sunday school camp?? Now that would be awesome wouldn't it?! Keep up the good work!
