Last week, all the grade 6/7’s a my school went on a camp, to a place called Gumleaves. It was heaps of fun.
We left at about 9:30 on Monday morning. The bus trip up was pretty boring, it took about an hour and a half to get up there. Once we did get there, we found our bags and went to where we were sleeping. I was in BlueGum, with Lucy and Daisy. Our cabin was number 1. The other people in BlueGum were Sophie, Brooke, Lucy and Jaimi-Lee, in number 3. Then Ella, Nikki and Monty were in number 5. The supervising teacher was in 2, and no-one in 4. There were 4 other cabin groups: WhiteGum and RedGum (where the girls slept) , GhostGum and Candle Bark (where the boys slept).
Once we’d had a look around, we then went on the big flying fox that went over the lake. It was heaps of fun, but also a bit scary because it was so high up. To get to the actual flying fox, you have to walky across a wire cable, then two bridges.
Another thing to do was going on the little row-boats out in the dam. I didn’t go on the them because it was too wet and muddy. There were heaps of different activities to do! My favourite thing was the the lake flying fox and the tire swing.
On the first night, my cabin’s fire alarm went off at about 3 in the morning. It was really, really loud. Apparently it was because the battery was going dead.
On the second day, we went on a huge bushwalk that went up-hill. My legs were really tired after. That night, we had a “red faces” talent show. My team did a small cheerleading kind of routine, and we won! In our group was Lucy, Daisy, Sophie, Jaimi-Lee, Brooke, Lucy, Ella, Nikki and Monty.
On our way back home, we stopped at a beach to have some lunch and a rest off the bus. Then we headed back home.
Camp was heaps of fun, and I’d love to go back.
