Year 8 Camp Reflection

My bags were packed and I was ready to go. Us year 8’s were going to a camp called Keswick in rotorua. That meant a 4-5 hour drive from Auckland.

As soon as we got to camp we unpacked our bags into our cabins. We also had a bit of free time to get to know the area before we went to a bush walk the was 3.8 km. It was very tiring but was fun seeing all of the awesome scenery.

A day had gone past and now we were well into our activities for each day. Our first activity was to go to a show called the agrodome. The agrodome was about the different types of sheep we have in New Zealand, we also saw tricks that involved the sheep, dogs, and ducks. We also went to see a geyser called Lady Knox.With our last activity for the day the Thermal Hot pools.

On day 3 we were going to swim in the blue lake. It was cold but after a while I got used to it. After that we went to the hot pools and swam again. At the hot pools they had a trampoline the we could jump on to get higher while jumping in the pool.

We came to the last day of camp which for my favourite highlight of the camp. We went to the luge were we went up the gondola. Going up the gondola was a bit boring because of the long ride up but the view was full of nature and nice scenery. Once we arrived up top we waited to go down the luge. The luge ride was fun and exciting, it was the best part of camp.
