Year 5 Camp

On the 15th and 16th of November. The Year 5's went to Woodend Christan Camp. We stayed for 1 night and 2 days. Sometimes we would get free time for about 1 hour and every free time I got I went on the really cool water slide where you can race someone. You can challenge someone to see who gets there first or who goes further.
The thing I enjoyed the most was probably Go Karting and Archery Because in Go Karting I didn't crash the Kart once. And I am proud of Archery because I got really close to the bull's eye
The thing I found most challenging was the team building because we had to get up a really high wall and go around two poles without detaching hands. Also we had to lift each other up the pole.
