Camp Reflection


Reflection for Camp


My goal for camp was to not give up and keep trying and have fun.


I achieved doing all the activities and having fun doing everything especially caving, kayaking and confidence course.


Something I was pleased with was, how my team and I worked really well together and challenge ourselves.
                            
Because we are a great team, and we like to try anything.
I really enjoyed learning, how the rata tree that we visited was 800 to a thousand years old.  It was also amazing how the rata tree was so big and everyone could fit around it.

Because the rata tree was beautiful and big. It was great to see the rata tree on camp.
Something I found hard was, the Pipeline, because it was really steep and long too. But I made it to the top.
 
Something that made me think was, that we should be very kind and caring too other’s  just in case they get hurt. Because if you are  kind to them they will be kind to you.   
· My top 4 favourite things about camp were:
