recount of camp

Have you ever wondered “oh what happened at year 8 leadership camp at night?” well let me tell you about what happened in the 1st night.

                                                 THE FIRST NIGHT
It was a nice normal day at camp full of fun activities until night hit. I really wasn't what I was looking forward too because I feel homesick at night whenever i’m at a camp. But before we went to bed we filled our drink bottles and went into our cabines. Before I went into bed I had one last drink. I went into my sleeping bag before as I was shutting my eyes Mr Wiseman said “10 minutes before lights out!” just as soon as mr Wiseman closed the door everyone except for me all started talking away. Mr Wiseman went straight to our cabin and turned off the lights. There was silence that hit the room (for like ten seconds) Hone tried to start a scary story but we all refused. Then Mr Wiseman said  “shut it and go to sleep”  mostly everyone tried to hold in laughter (except for me again) Mr Wiseman said “so you think it's funny now wait till you get to the bottom bunk!” (not his exact words)

Again and again Mr Wiseman kept on opening and shutting the door. And when we thought it was over jonathan said “is he gone?” troy peeked through the window and tried to look for mr Wiseman then like the grim reaper Mr Wiseman came and said” you you you out here now!”. He pointed at Hone, Jonathon , Troy  and Germaine. As soon as they left it was really quiet I was actually quite happy. (for 20 seconds) I was really annoyed when they came back because they were always talking.

We all asked “What happened?” all They said about it “oh we just had a run”  it felt like hours had gone by and the “bottom bunk” joke has never ended. For example one of them would say “you think memes are bad wait till you get to the bottom bunk.” But this wasn't isn’t joke walter asked “Ben wheres my watch at?”
and I quickly replied remembering where walter was putting “on the bottom bunk”  everyone started to burst with laughter. All I said was “guys it’s not that funny”

A few hours I think everyone is still awake and talking away and still making bottom bunk jokes. By the time morning came I was already tired and Mr Jacobson BURST thru the door and said “GET UP EVERYONE COME ON!” (sort of like that vine with the bird from sesame street broke that door) it took a bit to get up and trying to back our bags but as the bugle kept on going. we finally went outside to see everyone sitting up in our table lines to have get some breakfast and points. (Well i'm pretty sure you can tell that I wasn't like the people in my cabin and quiet most of the time even going into the cabin when everyone else was at the gym during free time)

  1. Kia ora Ben,

    Getting a good night's rest on Year 8 Camp is quite tricky with lots of different people as your new roommates. Just as a matter of interest, which do you prefer - the top or bottom bunk? I always thought the bottom bunk was better - easy to get in and out of bed without needing to climb up a ladder!

    I am looking forward to seeing more of your work on your blog in Term 3!
