Year 7 Camp
On Sunday afternoon, a very bouncy and bubbly group of excited Year 7 students headed off to Camp Waipu Cove. On the bus spirits were high and all the activities the students were going to take part in throughout the week were the talk of the bus.
When everyone arrived, tents went up quickly as everyone had learnt from the experience of tent pitching practice the week before. All the luggage was then moved into the tents and everyone got ready for their first swim of the camp.
Over the course of the camp the Year 7 students participated in; swimming, surfing, surf life-saving, rock climbing, abseiling, caving, surf kayaking, raft building, the survival challenge and the coastal walk. Many students were taken out of their comfort zones during some activities but came out of them with a buzz.
Overall, camp was a great chance for us all to make some awesome new friends and try some new things.
