Thirty Years at Chosen Valley for Year 7 Campers

March 11, 2024 at 3:54 PM

This year marked the thirtieth anniversary of our Year 7 camp at Chosen Valley in the Bombay Hills, making Saint Kentigern the longest-running group to utilise their incredible facility. Excitement, nervousness, and anticipation filled individuals as they headed out on their three-day adventure. Only a few weeks into the school year, all the students were still getting to know their peers – heading away for a few days certainly takes courage.

“I strengthened my friendships at camp by mixing with the girls from different classes.”

Mornings were spent engaging in leisurely pursuits like camp searches, creative showcases, compass tutorials, tower construction, and cooking over gas cookers. Afternoons were packed with outdoor challenges, from the Confidence Course to trolley races and Balance Island. Evenings brought laughter with Mastermind sessions and entertaining movie screenings or Camp Concert Gong Shows.

Free time was spent on the zip lines and playing volleyball. The pinnacle was the Inter-House Tag Team Relay, culminating in a Wishart House victory. Despite occasional weather challenges, the camp proceeded smoothly thanks to dedicated teachers and supportive parents.
