Dear Mum and Dad, trying to work harmoniously with others was a goal I took with me to Piha Mills Camp.
I enjoyed learning how to make tents with simple gear with my group. It taught me skills to use if I am stuck in the bush. Archery, Poles+Planks and Orienteering were activities that gave me the chance to work with the people in my team and get to now them better. get to Poles+Planks and Orienteering showed how much teamwork I had.
Our walk to the waterfall was fantastic. I enjoyed listening to the babbling sound of the water. I enjoyed swimming in the shivering water too.
Our visit to the Piha beach was amazing. The view was beyond beautiful. It was my first time seeing Lion Rock. I enjoyed making my own sandcastle of Rangitoto Island. It was an opportunity for me to be by myself and show my peers I am capable of working independently.
Overall I enjoyed showing off my volley ball skills, getting to know each other better, working alongside with different people, sleeping in the tent with Lavinia, Robbie and Dorothy and in the Dorm with the rest of the girls, eating delicious meals, pranking people but overall it was a great experience being at a different and fun place than home.
Mum and Dad, I am proud to say that I achieved my goal. I managed to work harmoniously with my peers and especially the people I just got to know more about. :-)
