This post is about camp. We went to treasure island in Pui O. We had to sleep in tents but it was very fun. My tent mates were Lauren Lee and Teri. It was from march 29th to march 31st.
My counsellor was called Mellisa. She was very good at riddles. Here is one of the hardest riddles. What goes down a chimney up but can’t go up a chimney down? Another of the riddles is, Wednesday, Bob and Kird went to a restaurant. Bob and Kird didn’t pay. Who paid? You can put your answers in the comments.
The activities were very fun and the food was very good. I was in group 2. Our group was called Potato Campers.
On the first day groups 1, 2, 3 and 4 had dinner at Mavricks and we had spaghetti. Groups 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 had BBQ. They had potatoes, corn on the cob, sausages and smores.
I have a lot of pictures of us and the things we had to use for the activities.
The stuff in the blue bucket is our food waste. We used it to make bokashi. So instead of putting the food scraps in the landfill we reuse them and when they were fully decomposed we would put them back in the soil. The brown stuff on them is the bokashi powder. The bokashi powder helps the food scraps decompose faster. You can actually use bokashi to clean your house!
We saw a lot of water buffalo’s and we also saw one cow. There was a water buffalo there called Bruce and he was the biggest of them all. The cow was called Billy. His story is that he used to eat a lot of rubbish and he had to go away to the vet to get all the rubbish out of his stomach then he came back.
I loved all the activities but I can’t tell you them all because that would take forever. I can’t choose my favourite moments or activities so I’ll just tell you some of it.
I looved the surfing because in the final round they flipped us over and it was really, really, really fun.
The raft building was really fun too. Mellisa showed us how to make a box knot. We came 2nd in the raft relay race. First we had to make the raft then when Mellisa said go we had to row the raft to our teachers. We did this with group one. Mellisa split our group into two groups and group one into two groups.
Mellisa told us that old ladies fight over dried buffalo poop because they use it for fertilizer in their gardens. Buffalo’s only eat grass so it is actually good for plants.
Anyway, Thats all for now!
