Melville Intermediate - Camp Recount Writing

This is the recount of Harry from Room Five about his time at the 2013 Melville Intermediate School Camp at the Narrows Camp, Cambridge.

On the fifth of March Rooms 1,2,5 and 6 went to the Narrows Park for our school Camp.  First thing we did before anything else was we had to unpack our bags and make our beds.  Then we got to settle into our activity groups and then we headed to what activities that we were doing first.  I was on the Go Karts, then the swimming pool.  After 45 minutes we had lunch and then we went to our next activity, mine was the water slide.  The bell rang and our next activity was the Bivoic making - ours wasn't water proof.  After that we had a bit of free time.

As soon as the bell rang again our group was the next to go on the Burma trail.  Mr Willis lead us to the Burma Trail and he said "follow the rope to make your way back to the camp".  After this Burma Trail we went back to have our dinner and dessert.  We brushed our teeth and had a shower, about half an hour later we went to sleep.

This footage is of the Water Slide at Narrows Camp filmed by Elizabeth and Jamie and edited and created into a movie by Cody and Nathan H.  Filmed from 4th March to 6th March at Narrows Camp.

  1. Wow, your camp sounds like so much fun! I have a pen pal from New Zealand, and we have been writing to each other for 20 years. She has always sent me pictures of the amazing nature you have, and I've always marveled at New Zealand's beauty. She would often tell me about camping and outdoor field trips at her schools. (She lived in Rotarua, Timaru, and now lives near Christchurch.)

    Thank you so much for your comment on my class blog! My students LOVED getting a comment all the way from New Zealand!
