2016 Camp El Rancho Portfolio sample

Description: On the 8th of March the year 5/6s went to Camp El Rancho in Waikene. We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. We were involved in ten different activities such as the Pool, Archery, Mini Golf, Water Slide, Rifles, Horses, Low Ropes, Kayaking, Rafts and Team intiatives. We stayed in three different Cabin blocks, Poplar for the Girls, Oregen for the Boys and Willow for Boys and Girls. I stayed in Poplar lodge. I was in Cabin Three with all my friends. We were in ten activitie groups of around 9-12 people in each group. The activity groups were the people that you do the activitys with and the skit with. Each day we did 2-3 activitys along with skit practise and camp diarys. On the Thursday night we  had a skit concert when the parents could come to see the children perform, The skits had to be entertaining for the audience and at least 2 minutes long and under 5 minutes. The camp diarys were for when we look back in 10 years we can remember camp El Rancho. On the Wednesday night we had a huge bonfire and we sat round and we sang songs and had s'mores. After that we could play play spotlight or go back to your cabin. After spotlight the parents hid and then they scared us as we walked by. We had to wake up at 7:00 but  to not get up before, we had to be in bed by 9:00. We had to have at least two showers to stay clean. We had to keep our cabin tidy and the teachers had to inspect.

I think you have done a incredible evaluation next time you could aim to challenge yourself a little more and if something isn't challenging enough make it.

  1. We had an awesome time didn't we? I really enjoyed watching you tackle challenges at camp. You were able to approach those challenges with a smile on your face showing a growth mindset. Keep transferring what you have learnt about yourself into school!

    And teachable moment: "activity" some words that end in a "y" change a bit when you are wanting to make it plural (more than one). The rule is "change the "y" to an "i" then add "es". Eg, Activity - Activities, Fly - Flies, Try - Tries etc.
