Kawau Island- Recount

Walt: summarise a week long experience into a recount.


4 chaotic days filled with laughter.  Away from my family but still having fun. Scared to death, because we thought our cabin was haunted. Camp Bentzon was the bomb.


The yr6ś of Pt England School have been going to Camp Bentzon for as long as you can imagine. This year it was our turn. Sleeping in cabins with your friends, eating lollies and enjoying the wonderful activities, what a great 4 days.

Meeting in the hall the yr6s were excited, especially me. Group by group the teachers called the roll. It was time to board the bus. Waving to my mother, I was so sad. Thirty minutes into the bus ride I started to secretly eat with Yvonne. We arrived at Sandspit


As the ferry pulled into the Camp Bentzon wharf we started to sing our school haka. We sang as loud as we could, making sure the spirit lay at Camp Bentzon. As we were we singing our haka the people who run the camp (Peter and Erin) were waiting there for us. Once we finished our haka we had a round of applause. With excitement we all ran to the door wanting to get out first. Each one of us made a line and started to unpack the ferry. Once we were all done we set out for our hike.

The next day we started to do our rotations. My favorite activity was Abseiling. I was the first girl to go and the second out of all. Abseiling was the best. My next favorite activity was Sailing. My partner Rosalina nearly fell out because she kept on moving the Tiller fast. On the last day of camp we had sports rotations. We had bush baseball, volley ball, touch and swimming. I enjoyed baseball the most. Camp was awesome.

It was time to go home. We packed the ferry and started our journey back to Sandspit. Once we were at Sandspit we unpacked the ferry and put all of our bags into the bus. It was time to set off and go back home.

Overall I enjoyed camp. It was a amazing experience for me. I enjoyed every moment of Camp Bentzon. Falling out of my kayak, sitting on a white tail, Best Camp EVER. Camp memories are still in my mind. I wish I could go back.


Task Description:The task was to write a recount about Yr6 Camp Bentzon. We had to write a recount about what we did at camp.
