First time listening was implemented from the ‘word go’, playing a game called “Stop”. The enthusiastic campers soon realised the challenges that lay ahead.

Through the moments of frustration, anger and celebration the children arrived at dinner with a smile on their faces, some full of dirt after an unexpected tumble.

The group loved the night hike through the vineyards, watching the sunset and learning all about the stars.

Day Two began and the failures of Day One were not forgotten, but used as fuel to tackle the obstacles that lay ahead.

Bonds had formed and teams had learnt that success was not determined by having your friends next to you, but by supporting your fellow camper, no matter who they were.

Day Two was full of more activities that really stretched our Grade 5’s mentally and physically. The day ended with a bonfire and a game of “Stalk the Lantern”, which was a highlight for all.

On Friday the Grade 5’s reluctantly packed their bags, having had one of the best experiences of their lives. New friends and memories were made that will never be forgotten.
