Camp Podcasts and Vodcasts

After returning from camp, we focused our writing attention on preparing a recount of camp that we could then record for a podcast (audio recording) or vodcast (video recording). This was our first time learning to use this technology and we struck a few problems, which provided us with new learning experiences (we can learn a lot from our mistakes!)

All of our work has now been posted to the blog, and the list below is a summary of what you can see. Click on the links to be taken to the recording or video. Enjoy!



Tai’s Recount Writing

On Monday the 7th of March we got to cave hill creek in beafort. I got the top bunk of course.

On Tuesday i did the orienteering with Liam G. We did it in thirty minutes and figue the sentences. We also had bike riding, it was the best activity. I was at the back because i am one of the best riders. One person had a massive stack she was centimetres from strangling herself on the fences. Which gave us all a shock.

On Wendseday i did the bouldering wall i did the whole ting without falling off it was tricky very long and you had to wait for te next person to finish. In the afternoon i did the 10km walk to glut it was long ,tiring and at the end i was excouted.

On Thursday i did sport time but it was raining so that was no good. I also did Canoeing and Abselling. At canoeing i went with Zak,you use a ore to move the boat. At Abselling I went first it was awesome when it came to the crack.

On Friday i did the bouldering wall again i also did the bike ride at advnce level i did the track in 8-9min so did Bailey H, Jake D, Shahab F and Mr campbell.

My favourite thing was bike riding because it was awesome ,exciting and exsillarating.


On Monday we arrived a Cave Hill Creek.

We ate lunch then Tim showed us around all the different places in the camp site. once we had eaten dinner we went on a night walk. On the night walk we saw lots of animals like kangaroos and koalas.

On Tuesday we went to our first activity which was an hour fourty five minute buh walk to Glut.on the bush walk there was a big waterfall so you had to go over a log to get to the other side. During the bush walk it was tiring getting up the steep hills and going over and under the logs and trees.

After the bush walk we went conoeing then we had sport time. At about eight pm we had a trivia night there was questions from things like back to the future and cartoon shows.

On Wednesday my group went to abseiling but when i went to go on it started to rain so it was really slippery. Our second  activity for the day was archery and i most popped a balloon! Orienteering and i got nineteen out of twenty. Our last activity for the day was photo trail and with that you had to findit and answer the questions later we had a talant night and calvin won.

On Thursday our first activity was the bikes it was hard going over the the broken down trees.  We also did low ropes and that was fun because there was ten activities and three group activities and i fell off seven times! Then we went to hut building and our hut came second place our last activity was bouldering wall. After dinner we had a disco.

On Friday we had to pack up to go home but before we went home we got to pick two choice activities and i chose  bouldering wall and low ropes because they were both really fun the first time.

All together the camp was fun and i thought that the low ropes was the best. Because the activities were awesome and i want to keep doing it over and over.

Lara’s Camp Recount!

As I stepped off the bus at cave hill creek camp I was so exited as I could see every one else was to. We got into the common room witch was huge. We meet the manager Tim he told us the rules and we were set to go and get our bags and see our cabins.

!Tuesday! first day of real fun my 2 favourite activites were the bouldering wall and the bush walk to glut because I didn’t like the hut building. I liked the bouldering wall because instead of going up a wall wew went across the wall. I liked the bush walk because we got to go hiking  and walk on trees and we saw lots of water falls.

A bad night turns into a good day because we had canoeing but the only bad thing about it was my partner Bethany kept on splashing me almost every time she put her paddle into the water it was anoeing. Other wise it was really fun and one of my favourite activites on camp one of my other favourite cativites on camp was absaleing. I was the first perrson to do it in my roup. It was really fun but when you get down you think the rock but when you first see the rock you think it is humungues.

8:45 after breaky it was inspections it was the last inspection for camp cabin 2 my cabin won the inspection so we got a big prize! My favourite activite on Thursday was the bikes because it was fun to ride through the bush. The only  thing I didn’t like about it wa sthat I thought I was lost until I saw a sign that said bike track this way.It was our last activite for the day. I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy it but I did I only did 1 lap because Bethany didn’tm have a bike so someone had to swap with her so I did I don’t think Taliah didn’t want to do a second lap. Another thing I enjoyed on Thursday was the disco it was really awesome  but there was only like 6 songs it was our last night there should have been almost 50 songs it should have gone for longer!

!Friday came at last it was time to go home but not time to stop activites we got to do 2 of  our favourite activites on the last day but we weren’t alowed to do absailing or canoeing and those were the ones I wanted to do so instead I did low ropes because I also enjoyed that but I slipped into mud and I had to go and change my pants and it was time to change activites. I went to sports time but I didn’t really play games I sat in the shade and talked to the teachers.

My most memroble moment was geting 3 masages at the talent show on Wednesday night. My favourite thing on cap was bein in a cabin and tent with all my friends. I also enjoyed makeing new friends because I didn’t know some people in my cabin I made new friends with Jenifer in 5/6F, Ashley and Crystal in 5/6D!
