Wednesday 9 March 1994

We went to camp today so I'm writing this sitting shotgun by the fire at 11.00pm with half an eye and half an ear out for the last kids to settle down. The building is set up so one person can see all the dormitory doors. So I've sent the others (parents) to bed which gives me a chance to scribble...

Dear Diary

Today I took my darling class to the Seventh Day Adventist Youth Camp at Spring Beach. We left school at 9.30 and arrived here before 11.00. We unpacked and headed straight for the beach and swam till lunch time.

Then we had an afternoon of activities run by parents. The kids could--build cubbies, abseil, bushwalk, kayak, animal track. The groups will rotate tomorrow.
