What happens on camp…..

 

If you’ve ever wondered what kids get up to on a school camp, take a look…..

228 

156

……pitching tents……

004

…g-swing….(ie. giant swing….so often did it get called the g-string!!!!….so difficult trying not to laugh at the kid’s faux pas…….

028

abseiling……

040

sharing jobs…….

041

Took turns to help our Host aka chief cook and bottlewasher for kitchen duties, including washing up and drying dishes, serving food, cleaning tables and sweeping floors…..

222

in our favourite place…..the dining room!

053

…..ate healthy food….

061

made twisty damper over the campfire…..

070

formed new friendships……

121

climbed up to the Leap of Faith……

067

gained self confidence and faith in things that mattered to tackle difficulties ……

160

…annoyed the teachers in their sleeping quarters……(only two walls, privacy….hah!!!!),,,,,

212

showered in style…..(remember it’s winter here…..but only got down to 11 degrees minimum….still cold for a shower in the evening or early morn!!)….

213

took many trips to the ‘long drop’……

215 

216

….the boy’s version……..

157

…..packed our bags and tents on the horse float for the hike down the hill to where the bus was to pick us up to take us home.

161

………and said goodbye to a truly memorable campsite, one that offers children and adults alike the opportunities to push themselves to their limits, develop skills that they never knew or imagined they could ever access and help them become the best people they can possibly be to lead our world to a very bright future.

There were so many other things we did whilst we were on camp but,,,

1. I didn’t take photos of everything due to some activities being night time and having to run the activities and take photos was a bit tricky…..

and

2.  showing full on photos of the children is not on in a public domain….so I’ve done my best to give you a snippet of what we did……

So don’t let anyone tell you, “Whatever happens on camp, stays on camp!!!”

……..and what did I do when we got home? ………zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!

sugary hugs and sweet dreams!

Wow Wendy, looks like you all had a great time.
Yeah, it's a bit difficult with the kiddie pics, but you really did a great job of showing us the activities whilst keeping anonymity.
Hope you enjoyed your nap...
