This year the campers from Grades 3-6 went to Camp Doxa at Malmsbury for our 5 day camp.
On Monday when we arrived we were allocated our rooms and then began our activities. These were Archery and an Initiatives Course which was all about teamwork and communication.
On Tuesday, our activities were cooking (we made yummy raspberry muffins!), a low ropes course, crate stacking and River Ecology. We looked at insects growing in the water and learnt about the need for their existence in our environment.
On Wednesday, we went to Sovereign Hill where we had a great time learning about the gold rush and part of Victoria’s history. We went down into the Red Hill mine and went panning for gold. Some of us even found some gold!
On Thursday, we had a great time on the rock climbing wall and the giant swing. Miss Kelly, Janine and Annette all went on the giant swing too! Some of us pushed our limits and overcame our fears of heights which is what camp is all about!
Thanks to Mr. Pell, Miss Kelly, Janine, Annette and Mr. Cripps for coming along and helping us in all of the activities.
We had such a great time and learnt a lot about ourselves and each other! We look forward to next year’s camp and going to Camp Doxa in the future!
