I am writing this letter to say a huge thanks for coming to camp kaitawa with my class. You helped a lot in the kitchen cooking the meals dishing up the food onto the plates, Keeping us safe on the walks to make sure we didn’t fall in any holes at lou’s lookout and helping in the caves by encouraging the people who needed some help climbing and walking down steep hills.
My highlight for camp was the dark activities especially the caving, I loved the last cave with the bat poo and we had the shimmy across the wall and jump to the ladder, Did you think the bat poo stunk the entire cave? It was funny watching some people explore the bat poo.
My second highlight was master chef. It was challenging at first but I picked it up pretty fast. My tribe cooked a meat pattie on some chips with carrots surrounding the meat pattie. Murray did not know but we put some secret chill powder and hot pepper in the pattie. It might of been cheating but he liked it.
Did you know that lake waikaremoana was formed 2200 years ago, A landslide caused the big chunks of sandstone went flying across the sky landing on top of each other causing gaps in between making the onepoto caves. Here's an interesting fact about the urewera region, 180 million years ago the urewera region was on the seabed. The was raised by the Pacific and indo australian tectonic plates colliding and causing it to rise. Te urewera national park is 2120 square km-largest in the North island and the 4th largest in new zealand. It has the largest remaining native forest in the North island.

MY SPECIAL PLACE
My special place is a place hidden away from the world a peaceful spot. A place where you could yell at the top of your lungs and the sound of your voice would slowly eco away and disappear. As the massive mountains surround I feel as if a in a giant pit. The bush seems to stretch for miles. At night we go for walks around the gravel track as we hunt for possums and look for moreporks.
The wide river flows gently along side the tall cliff, on the other side of the river the huge boulders must of fallen down from the cliff they look as if they have been there for centuries. The trout jump and leap like they are trying to put on a show for me, the big slimy eels play hide and seek among the jagged rocks as they hunt for food. The raging rapids power over big rocks as they gobble up anything in its path.
The tall mountains have people climbing them like little ants all over an half eaten hot dog. People who scale those mountains must be trained professionals and must of climbed essayer mountains. The jagged rock face have little hand holds. There are platforms where you could rest or hang a hammock and put up a stretcher. The mountains look very difficult to climb and a landslide could strike without warning. At the top lies a small green flag, I guess that it is some sort of highest land point kind of thing.
The helicopter's roar over the sky as they take people up river so they can kayak back down. The helicopter pad is a small patch of mown grass, the long grass that surrounds the pad seems to look like it will blow away as the chopper takes off. Massive storage compartments are on each side of the chopper to fit kayaks and bags in. As it takes off it sways back and forth in the wind and speeds of up river like a lion chasing its prey . This place is very very beautiful it takes me away from the world whenever I come here.
My special place is a beautiful camping site called kuripapango.
