Shoal choose to represent Act.
John Key won the votes. I wanted Labour to win. Labour had better campain then national. It is o.k though because John Key would run our country well.

We got to Camp and believe it or not we got straight into it, with the longest walk. I would have rather went to sleep or even check out my cabin. That was because I was really tired from our bus ride.
Going up the hill made everyone tired. I wanted to stop but our leaders supported us to keep going. “ Are we half way yet?” I asked Tony (Helper) “No” he replied. I was shocked.
A pile of rocks were waiting for us at the top. As soon as everyone got there,Rita, placed a rock on the pile. Then she began her speech. Her speech was about our journey to the top and what exciting things that is going to come.

Our first activity for the day, was sailing and I was really nervous. Peter gave us a choice to go solo, or with a partner. I choose to go with a partner, and my partner Shoal was also a bit anxious.
“Does anyone want to demonstrate?” Peter asked. We were all scared to go up, I could sort of tell by the look on our faces. No one went up so me and Shoal did.
As soon as we got out there, everyone got the hang of it. It was really fun, except for the part when me and Shoal almost capsized. That was scary.

Only 1 more week until the year 6 kids are going to Camp Bentzon and Kauwa island. I can’t wait.
Camp Bentzon is in the north cove. To get to camp Bentzon you will have to catch a ferry from Sandspit.
The exciting activities that are going to be taken placed at Kauwa island is the, Confidence course, Fitness trail, Raft making, kayaking and many more. There are a lot of activities here. They are going to be really fun too, especially if it would be your first time (ME).
The one activity that stood out the most would be the confidence course. There are a lot of activities for the confidence course, but one of them is when you stand on two tires and try to balance. Now that would totally bossed up my confidence.
My Challenge at camp is to not break any rules. Even this one, no live trees are to be felled. This means I am not allowed to break any branches of any trees.
I am extremely exited about this, and I am sure everyone else is too. My thoughts in my head are that this might be the highlight of the year.

Tennis is a common sport played in Spring and Summer. We started learning how to play tennis at school and boy was I excited about that. I couldn't wait.
When we got to the courts I felt a little bit nervous and excited at the same time. What if I miss the ball when someone serves it to me? If I did, I would probably be the worst tennis player in history.
Our coach, I mean our professional coach Marcel taught us how to do a forehand. A forehand was really easy. We learned how to do that hit in badminton all ready. All of us were pro's at it.
After learning the forehand we played a rally called King or Queen. It was like a real game of tennis. If you won, you would stay on and challenge another opponent. At the end if you were still the Queen or King you wouldn't have to do the awful punishment, which was 20 star jumps.
Tennis was a game I needed to play more often, because I LOVED it. It really got me going. I can't wait to play tennis again.

Do you know how too make a comet? Well not the real thing of course. With ice cream, cones, crushed biscuits and sprinkles, room 17 and 16 made comets.
Comets are objects that float in outer space. If a comet is close to the sun it melts. This is because it is made out of dust and ice and surprisingly, it has a tail. A comets tail can be in the front and in the back, but if it is in the front it would most likely be going away from the sun, but if it is at the back it will go towards it.
Step 1: Crush the biscuit by putting it in a bag then get a block and start smashing it.
Step 2: Put a scoop of ice cream in your hand, watch out though it might melt. The ice cream would be the ice.
Step 3: Outside sprinkle the crushed biscuits over it. This is the dust.
Step 4: Put a cone over it. The cone is the tail of you comet. Step 5: Sit back relax and enjoy your ice cream. That is how you make a comet.
When we finished, boy didn't we have a big mess outside. There was crushed biscuits all over our courtyard. Mr Sommerville would probably be the king of mess, if I had to explain him.
Our comets were delicious. I was even scavenging for more. At the end though, most of the kids that had seconds or thirds all felt sick.
