School Camp 2013

School Camp 2013      

Last week the senior class had a very successful School Camp at Echo Creek Adventure Centre near Tully. The camp grounds are pleasantly set out on a gently sloping hillside overlooking a small dam, with the onsite tents nestled amongst tropical gardens, providing an ideal mix of proximity and privacy.

The children all took their turns at preparing meals and cleaning up in the very practical camp kitchen. The camp activities coordinator is both knowledgeable and entertaining, and the children enjoyed the challenging activities and the humorous anecdotes provided along the way.

While the emphasis was on working together as a team, the activities all involved personal challenges as well. They were put through their paces with raft building, low ropes, a very muddy and physical obstacle course and team trust games. It was great to see the children meeting those challenges and growing in confidence as they succeeded. It was a lot of fun and a fantastic learning experience for everyone.
