Camp Bentzon, Top 5 Tips

Camp Bentzon is a fun camp for lucky year 6’s where you do a lot of fun activities. This camp is pretty much where you face your fears. Camp Bentzon is also found on Kawau Island. On Kawau Island you will see a huge white Mansion. Every year 6 camp there is always groups. The group names are Bentzon, Mansion, Kawau, and Katz. Anyways here are a few tips about camp. 

First Killer Hill, as soon as you get to Kawau island you better be prepared because after you’ve unloaded the ferry you have to get ready to go for a very long hike up Killer Hill, and believe me you will regret it if you don't go prepared. What I mean by prepared is full water bottle, nice light bag with your lunch in it, and lastly ears. When Mr Goodwiwn said that Killer Hill really kills you, I didn’t believe him until we started taking the first 5 steps, turned out he was right it does kill you but it especially kills your legs. So if I were you I would take my advice and listen to my teacher. 

Second Morning Tea Time: every time it’s morning tea time you always have to go through the drive thru. If you are wondering what the drive thru is, at camp we have have a “drive thru” where you go through to get your Lunch and Morning Tea. The drive thru is normal windows but they just call it the drive thru. Here's a trick if you want to get more biscuits, the first time you go through make sure your wearing a hat if you want more go through again but wear a different hat and just keep going through until you get caught.

Now the third tip is about Kayaking: When you go kayaking make sure you are really confident, cause if you're not you will get so nervous and forget the instructions because your just sitting there panicking. This tip is what I always did when people would come next to me even teachers, what I did was everytime someone would come next to me I would always lean forward or back or wherever they are and push them away so they’re not in my way. That last tip for Kayaking is when you kayak to Stingray Bay Splash lots of people and get them really good especially Mr Somerville cause I bet you he will splash you too. 

Now for the last and final tip this tip is about playing spotlight: when Mr Jacobsin tell yous to go and hide make sure you stay close to the deck so you could get there and be the first one. When you go and hide make sure there is no one there with you, if there was than you could get caught easily cause that person might move around alot especially when your hiding in the bushes, also if you wanna hide with your friend that is very talkative, if I were you I wouldn’t hide with that person. 

With these Top 5 tips you will have the best year 6 camp ever, when you go to camp I also wish you good luck because if your afraid of heights “unlucky” anyways hope you enjoyed my writing, and your camp. 
Have fun!!!
