When we arrived at camp we put our bags down and went to find out about the Maldon Camp. We also got to find out what cabins we were in. When I found out mine I was in Cabin 8. There were two girl cabins and two boy cabins. The teachers and parents who came along slept in different rooms.
At the Maldon Camp we went on heaps of walks and bike rides. We went on a night walk. It was very dark. On the bike rides we went to the BMX track and rode to the dredge. At the dredge there were trees, sticks and a lake. We did hut building there. We split up into groups and made a hut. My group made a tee pee hut which is a hut shaped like a triangle. After we finished I think we did a great job. We made a pretend camp fire.
We walked up a big mountain called Mount Tarrangower. It was very steep to go up. I think it was one of the longest walks I have done. It was a wonderful feeling when I was at the top. There was a big tower you could climb up. When you got to the top of the tower you could see many things.
The meals there were delicious. For breakfast we had pancakes and bacon and eggs. For lunch we had pasties and sausages. For dinner we had spaghetti bolognaise and chicken strips and vegetables.
On the last night at camp we had a disco and then a movie. Mrs Morris was a really good DJ, she played heaps of good songs. The movie we watched was ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’. It was a very good movie. I would rate it 5/5.
We also got to have free time. We could play mini golf, do obstacle courses, read or talk in our cabins, play table tennis, play soccer or play basketball.
The people who worked at the camp were nice and their names were Ric, Denise and Michael.
