I honestly couldn’t wait for camp as my stomach had butterflies as time was passing. I had just been dropped off to school seeing lots of yr 7 and 8 students with there bags already to go. We all had gathered up in the hall so we can be told where are we going. My group the Carez were told to do Hangi prep. I thought preparing for the Hangi was a great job to do. The Carez had to peel the potatoes and kumara. After a long time of peeling we had been told to get ready for kayaking.
So then the Carez set off down to Pt England beach for kayaking. Mr Burt had set us kids an example of how to place your self in a Kayak. There were also single and double kayaks. I was really looking forward to sharing a double Kayak with one other person. So went off in a kayak trying to pace my self. I imagined I was in a real race passing the finish line coming first. I had very sore arms. It felt like there was something was wrong with my arms. I was getting tired and decided to have a rest on the grass.
