Hanmer Springs Camp 2017

Last week Totara went on The 2017 Hanmer Springs Camp

Totara 1 and Te Hiringa went on Monday - Wednesday and Totara 2 and 3 went on Wednesday - Friday.


First we left Grey Main and travelled to Reefton for some Morning tea and a bit of a break.
We then left Reefton and headed through Springs Junction and to Hanmer Springs.
We then got settled in and had our first activity - Which for Activity Group 5 (Which I was in) we had Orienteering - I was in a team with Jimmy, Liam, Sam and our adult was Ben - We won the Orienteering with the Maximum amount of points with 15 Minutes to spare!
After the Activity we headed off to the Hot Pools where we could go on The Super Bowl, Hydroslides, Play Pool, Lazy River, 1 of the Hexagonal Pools and 1 of the Rock Pools.
After the Pools we had our tea - It was Spaghetti Bolognese - We then headed to T2's Kitchen/Dining Room for a Quiz. After that we went back to T3's room and we had Supper.

On Thursday we had Breakfast and then our first Activity at 9am - This activity was Mountain Biking. After we got back we our lunch and then our 3rd Activity which was Mission Impossible. When then went to Conical Hill and walked up that to the lookout point. When then walked back down and got in the cars to the Lolly Shop. When got our Lolly's there and then went to the Hot Pools. After the Hot Pools we went back to the Camp and had our tea - Which was Devilled Sausages and for Pudding we had Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding with Ice Cream. When then went to T2's Room and had the Camp Concert.

On Friday we packed up all of our gear and started our final Activity for the Camp which ours was Tree Climbing - Which was my favourite. We then left Hanmer Springs and headed to Reefton for Lunch. After leaving Reefton we arrived home on time.
