year 7 camp

Seventy three students and four teachers ventured out from Port campus for 3 days of fun and adventure at the Great Aussie Bush Camp at Tea Gardens. 

The trip is only 2 hours so we arrived for an early lunch and were then ready to hit the activities.

There were 3 groups who rotated around a variety of activities which mainly involved adrenaline and overcoming fears of heights. These activities included the giant fan, flying fox, giant swing and high ropes course. All students were pushed out of their comfort zones and there were many seriously scared young people who had to force themselves to even move a foot 10m off the ground. Notable efforts for overcoming fear were Emma Du and Ben Harris but the two most horrified students were a tie between Imogen Enfield and Liberty Brazier who eventually completed all challenges

Other enjoyable events were the raft building and sailing at Hawks Nest, the mud challenge and the night time commando activity which was a lot of fun. Many new friendships were formed and everyone learned a little more about themselves.

Overall the students were excellent ambassadors for the School and the behaviour was very good. Thank you Year 7 for a great camp and I hope many happy memories have been made.
