Challenge, Fun and Smiles at Year 7 College Camp

March 17, 2015 at 7:56 AM

There were smiles all round when our youngest sons and daughters of Kentigern headed to the recent Year 7 orientation camp at Chosen Valley in the Bombay Hills.  All 126 students enjoyed the sun, fun and camaraderie of a ‘full-on’ camp coordinated by Mr Kevin Taylor and the Year 7 teachers. The many activities on offer provided an excellent means to ensure that the new students were well integrated into our College community.

Activities are plentiful at camp to provide new challenges, plenty of fun and the chance for students to get to know one another. Of all the activities on offer, the students definitely put a positive spin put on those that involve water – fresh and clean or cloudy and muddy, it doesn’t seem to matter! Wherever there’s the opportunity to enter water at high speed - the bigger the splash the better!

These camps are an invaluable part of our orientation for students who are new to Saint Kentigern. New bonds are formed, House loyalties are entrenched and big, tired smiles of campers saying, ‘Awesome, let’s do it again,’ make the experience worthwhile.

Our thanks go to all the staff and also to the many parent helpers who were able to join our students at camp and provide valuable assistance and supervision.
