2017 Year 7 Camp – Licola
Camp Licola is a little slice of secluded paradise. A place of comfort, fun and friend-making. As we pulled into the camp we were immediately filled with awe at the steep arching hills and the lush green trees that surrounded the area. Tall rock climbing walls and the shimmering pools were arranged neatly around the camp, enticing us to drop our bags and play.
We were firstly assigned into our cabins, they all gave off a homely and comforting aura. Each was a decent size with three rooms and two bathrooms.
The activities were amazing! Each one made us try our hardest and made us want to accomplish the best that we could. Whether it be golf, canoeing, swimming, flying fox, rock climbing or just socialising with our friends; it was immensely enjoyable. We loved playing volleyball with our friends, chuckling at their terrified faces as they plunged down the giant swing and sharing the delicious mouth-watering food.
The camp staff at Licola were all warm and bubbly and made us all feel welcome. The teachers were great fun on camp and it was interesting to see the side of them away from teaching.
Overall camp Licola was an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all students and teachers. It was a great way to get to know new people and make new friends. Although we were all tired when we left the camp, we all have many fun memories to laugh about in the future. On behalf of all of the year 7’s we would like to thank all of the teachers for making this a truly memorable experience.
