Year 6 Camp 2017
Level 6 Camp 2017
Level 6 Camp Report - By Jasmin and Charlie
On the 2nd of June the level 6’s went to The Summit Camp in Trafalgar East Victoria. When the bus pulled up onto the grass, it got bogged in the mud and we had to wait. When the bus finally got out, the students were able to get their luggage and have a look at their cabins. There were six cabins but we only used five.
On the first day the students did group games, where we were put with a staff member and did some warm up activities. This happened every day before the start of the daily activities. Some of the activities on the first day were Tiles, Key Punch, Half Pipe and Treasure. After all the activities had been completed the campers got to go to their cabins and get ready for dinner.
On the second day everybody went to breakfast where they found out what activities they would do that day. The activities that they did for the next few days were The Snowy River Challenge, Inflatable City, Human Foosball, Orienteering, Flying Fox, Sky Bridge, Laser Skirmish, Rock Wall, Snake and Nails, Shine, Monster Course, High Wire, Cave, Bush Challenge, Summit Window, Giant Swing, Abseil and the Leap of Faith.
Some lucky people got to go on a tank ride because they really stood out to the staff and the teachers. The students also had a talent show, a movie night, a minute to win it, a trivia night and a fashion parade. I think that the level 6’s had a blast and would definitely come back for another week.
Since 2011, the Year 6 camp has been held at ‘The Summit’. The Summit is located in East Trafalgar approximately 110km from Melbourne. The Year 6 Camp offers the opportunity for students to experience challenging and risk taking activities while learning about each other and co-operating to a high degree.
Activities have included rock climbing, abseiling, ropes course, initiatives course, orienteering, giant swing, leap of faith, laser skirmish and much more. Throughout the week students set themselves achievable goals. Once these goals have been reached, students are asked how they can stretch themselves even further. All students come away from the camp feeling a sense of achievement.
