Camp Reflection Day 1

I entered the hall and saw people putting down their gear by which their group name appeared. I searched around for a paper which said “Team Respect”. I went over and put my bags down. It was 8am in the morning and I had to wait for another 50 minutes until the bell went.

Wondering what I’m talking about? Today was our first day at Camp. We have done a lot of cool activites and it has been a splendid day. Well for now, I am going to be telling you of a few of the things that I have done.

Seini-Mino and Cruz led us to our first activity since they were our leaders. At first my group did Boxfit, which was basically just an activity that you learn how to box and to defend yourself. We started off by doing some basic exercises which included running. Another exercise we did was sit-ups. After we had warmed up the tutors showed us the basics. This was just learning how to  defend ourselves. Not so long after we had finished this activity and were ready to move on to our next rotation which was putting up tents.

We met Ms squires down at the field, she had a few tents by her and a few hammers. Firstly we started off just learning how to put up a tent, which looked easy, but was it really? One of our quick jobs were to get into groups of 6. I was in a group with Seini-Mino, Jay’Lee, Chante, Mary and Vivienne. “We have 45 minutes and we have to put up 10 tents” Ms Squires exclaimed. We got to work. We hadn’t even realized that time was nearly up and we had already finished our 10 tents.

Today was a great day and I really enjoyed it. I hope tomorrow is even better and we do many more activities.
