The Grade 5s excitement was palpable as they gathered early on Wednesday morning. They boarded the buses for Simonsberg Christian Camp with a bustle in the air and a spring in their step.  They were eagerly awaiting 3 days and 2 nights of non-stop, fun-filled adventure, team-building and excitement!

The boys and girls wasted no time in immediately beginning the adventure upon arrival in a very warm Stellenbosch. They were divided into teams and received colourful bandanas. Then the fun and games commenced with an interesting rendition of ‘frozen statues’.

Fun was the name of the game. By building rafts, swinging across motes, climbing the high wall and conquering the obstacle course, the students realised that anything is possible with a good mindset, and a little help from a friend.

Some of the obstacles faced by our eager campers appeared to be microcosms of obstacles they could face in reality. However, they overcame these challenges with the grit, determination and integrity practiced and taught by Sun Valley Primary.

By the end of day three at camp, the campers were very tired and eager to see mom and dad again. However, what an adventure that was! Grade 5 2019 is certainly quite a phenomenal bunch.
