Caving at camp

Camp day 3

I am in a cave it is wet and muddy so the mud is  really squidgy
in the onepoto caves. In this cave we have to turn our light off so it is really dark. There are raindrop falling from the ceiling and then  going spat on my raincoat. I am at the back with Tracey , Marcus , me, and Mrs H.  We are the last ones so in the caves it is more challenging because the people that were in front had wet slippery shoes that had made rock all slippery But I didn't care I was happy to be caving. I can just see a tiny glimpse of light coming from end of the cave. I feel something squidgy I think it is mud  Then I get woof of smelly mud up my nose. “POO” I say to Tracey this mud smell awful  It smells like a dump I kept walking a turn a corner and  Then I see the end of the cave this time we have to get up to get out  I clamber out into the fresh air  I turn around and grab Tracey's hand  and pull her up then me and Tracey help Mrs H up we come to our last cave we go in it is a bit skinny  David is singing  and Tracey doesn't like it finally we were walking then I see what we have  to do we have to walk around the outside of a rock while holding onto a pole going around the rim  of the rock once I get to the bottom I smell a horrible smell it is like a truck full of  cow poo but worst then I see it it is a huge puddle of water it looks disgusting. Then I saw how I can get over without stepping in it. It was really narrow so I could lean against the wall so I do it I am halfway across and then “HURRY UP THE WHOLE CLASS IS OUT HERE IN THE RAIN, FREEZING HURRY UP !!!” Jason yells I get such a fright I fall right into the smelly mud so I and even more wet and worse I smell so I hurry up to the end I can’t wait till I go back to camp and have a shower because I and FREEZING!!!

Camp day one

Hopping around on rocks surrounding Lake Kiriopukae is so much fun at Camp Kaitawa. We are hopping around on rocks around the lake. There are lots of small ones that we can do ourselves and there are big ones that the parents  help us with. Then we come to a big rock. I am a bit of a daredevil so I climb up it. It wasn't scary at all, it was a little steep. Bridgit starts you off and then Mrs H met you in the middle and helps you get up a bit where you have to stretch your leg up a long way and you slide if you're not careful. When you get up to the top Anthony helps you up the last bit.  There are some holes in the rock and I could grab onto them. I like a challenge so when Anthony asks did I want to lean back? Of course I said yes I love doing that type of stuff. I yell to my mum to get the camera out (she is Bridgit). I am up to the top leaning back as much as I can then looking down at my mum thinking I am crazy. Well I sorta am, I went up that rock 4 times. It was awesome! I jump on to a smaller rock.  It is not as big as the other one but it is still challenging. Miss Patel is on this one. I start climbing and it has some bits to hold onto. I do a quick scan I and choose which rocks to hold onto. I am up on that rock in a second. I just need a path and then I am up. I try the harder path. I run and grab as the same before. I am up there in seconds! Miss Patel helps me at the end bit, then the whistle goes and it is time to go back to camp.
