2016 Year 7 Camp - Licola: Tuesday 15th March - Friday 18th March
Last week our Year 7 students travelled to Licola Wilderness Village and had an awesome week with wonderful weather (most of the time) and the best teachers ever… They had the opportunity to abseil, build rafts, swim, zoom down the flying fox, trampoline, night hike, complete the low ropes course, race the obstacle course, rock climb, practice their archery skills, go on the giant swing or canoe (while avoiding being tipped out by Mr. Bell) and so much more. The weather held out for most of the week, however when it didn’t, it was time to hold a dance party where all students had the chance to “carve up the dance floor”. A big thankyou to all staff and students for making it such a great camp. Well done everyone!
The camp has a varied activites program that students will rotate around in small supervised groups.
The activies include: Canoeing and raft making, flying fox, high and low ropes courses, fully fenced in-ground swimming pools, tenni/basketball courts, volleyball, orienteering, night hikes, bush cooking, initiative activities, hut building, table tennis, archery, fitness tracks, climbing tunnels, team rescue and giant swing.
