The Awesome Riverside Camp!!!

The Awesome Riverside Camp!!!

(one week ago) YAY the holidays have finally arrived and I am so excited as the after school programme, called Riverside is having a camp at Willow Park. It is a Christian Camp ,near eastern beach Manukau. I thought that it was awesome that my school was doing this for Children who generally have a very boring holiday most time.

So Mr Burt sent all the Riversiders out of school with a Newsletter about this Camp. But there were only enough spots for 80 people. Though I thought that is was a bit unfair because some children couldn’t pay the whole fee!!! Luckily there were some very kind people who were more then happy to help us, by taking the price from $180 to only $60!! Because they payed the rest of it which I think is wonderful!!!

I was so grateful that I was able to go, because usually I wouldn’t have been able to, but my Nana payed for me to go which I thought was awesome. (Just like the camp was.)

As soon as I got to the camp I was so hoping that I would be in my friends Ashleigh’s team, and at first we weren’t but then she swapped just to be with me and Vivienne. ( It was naughty but oh well!!!!) We had Maree and Ocean as our leaders, but we had hoped that we would've had Helen and Paulitia instead. Though we did cope!!!!!!

We did so many activities there at Willow Park but my favourite one was the Chocolate fish hunt! It was so much fun beccause one of the places we looked, (Ashleigh,Vivienne,Jordeane and I) Heaps of people said that there were no more but there were 4 places that they didn't look through. They were behind two of the tables, in the fridge and also in one of the cupboards. Itr was awesome because we go to eat the chocolate afterwards!!!

Well I am so glad that I was able to go. But if I told about everything about this camp it would be one of the longest stories ever!!! Though I hope that everyone who helped us at the camp and who helped us get to the camp will know how much I apprieciate it, and I think I speak for everyone!!!!



  1. I'm glad you had a good week at Willlow Park. I was a bit concerned about the weather but it sounds as if it didn't worry you at all. Thanks for sharing your experience.
    Looking forward to seeing you next Tuesday,
    Miss Garden

  2. Hi Chante,
    That was lots of fun at Willow Park. I wish we got to stay there longer. My favourite part there would have to be Get Your Own Back. That was so much fun. Maybe you should check your spelling before you publish. It's o.k though, I still understood it. Keep up the great work, and see you back at school for an exciting term.


  3. Thanks Vivienne and Miss Garden, I have fixed my mistake Vivienne and Miss Garden, the weather was not the greatest and I felt like I didn't want to do anything but it was so so so much fun. I hope everyone had a great holiday and thank you for commenting!!!!!


  4. Hey Chante,

    That sounds like you had so much fun. I wish I could have came but unfortunately I got sick the day before camp. Anyways, your writing was fantastic. I could clearly tell that you really enjoyed it. You might want to read what I did in the holidays, you could just go to my blog and read it.

    Yours Sincerely,
