The week after we started Field School, we went to Camp Palehua. When we first got to the camp, we chanted our He Aloha No Nanakuli oli and got settled into our cabins and got ready for our hike with Dr. Rowland. For our math lesson and he talked about types of works like dikes and layers of the rocks. Dikes stored water and Hawaiians used it to find water. During our hike, we were recording our number of steps on pedometers for our math lesson. We ended our hike at the top of Nanakuli valley where you could see the entire valley including our school. After the hike, we went back to our cabins and rehydrated. We split up into 2 groups and did bonding exercises. Papa Ulu started with the Whale Watch exercise and Papa Koa started with the Mohawk walk. At first, people started talking, but later learned how to work as a team to complete the task. After our team building exercises, we went back to the camp and then got ready to go out into the garden to pull weeds, planting, and watering plants. After a long day, we showered and ate dinner. After dinner, Papa Koa cleaned the kitchen. We had some free time and then all met up at the camp fire to talk about our day and what we learned and what we were grateful for. We ate smores and then enjoyed nature, I loved the scenery. I helped our kumu prepare breakfast for the next day and clean the pitchforks. We went to bed and were tired. In the morning, we packed up our stuff and ate breakfast and got ready to leave. The highlight of our overnighter for me was the bonding exercises, nature, and the campfire. It was important to go there and stay overnight because we didn’t really know each other in the beginning and it taught us how to trust each other and when we bonded, we learned more about each other and became better friends. That helps us with our learning because we can ask our friends for help and be comfortable with them. I really enjoyed it and I hope we do this next year!
