In Week 1 of Term 4, the Year 3 boys departed for a two-day Outdoor Education trip to Mylor Baptist Camp. The program ensured our boys were fully engaged in varied problem-solving and physically challenging experiences which were run by Baptist Care.

The focus of the camp was on building team work skills, developing positive relationships and perseverance. The students completed a range of indoor and outdoor activities that required cooperation, perseverance and problem solving. The boys rotated through activities such as the flying fox, initiative pursuit, scavenger hunt, crate stacking, the bouldering wall and low ropes. These activities provided students with the opportunity to participate and have fun whilst being physically and mentally challenged to complete tasks successfully. The students challenged themselves outside their comfort zones, further developing their confidence and resilience.

Camp highlights included exciting group activities, playing games during free time, enjoying a relaxing evening together, sleeping in the cabins on bunk beds and of course, the scrumptious food!

Overall, the experience was both personally challenging and enjoyable for students. This is a foundation stage of developing the outdoor education experiences for Junior School students. The boys were extremely well behaved and co-operative at all times and were a pleasure to take away. A special thank you must go to Mr Sam Howes, Mrs Sue Dansie, Mrs Angela Norman, and Luke Matthews our exchange student, who assisted us.
