HUT! 2, 3, 4, HUT! 2, 3, 4........

Year 7 and 8 at my school (Wairoa College) were invited to go to camp, so Maddie and I went. During camp they took us to Waiouru military training camp.  A man there showed us the "Evolution of Weapons".  He started with the the first weapon all the way to the gun they equip the modern army with.  Almost every single weapon he talked about was right there in his hands and he would pick one of us to come hold it to see how heavy or how light it is, or how it feels when the gun is fired and the kick hits you.  I had the chance to hold one of the guns when he picked me, but the gun I got to hold was a really old gun that was really heavy.  After that they gave us a tour of the base.  We got to see where they were trained, where they ate, where they stored the tanks, and probably some other places that I have forgotten.  Over all the military training camp was pretty cool.


  1. I bet that you and Maddie had a lot of fun!

  2. Do they have a large military? Are they fighting any battles anywhere in the world right now?
