The boys in Years 3 and 4 have just spent three wonderful days at Camp Manyung, Mt Eliza. The weather was perfect and so were the boys! It was a most enjoyable time as the boys happily joined with their peers in a fun and encouraging environment away from home. Various activities and challenges focusing on group dynamics, problem solving, resilience, communication, trust and teamwork were made available to the boys and they all graciously accepted those challenges. On day one, they had a beach carnival, went for a swim, rode the giant swing and enjoyed a trivia challenge and watched a movie. The next day they tested out their balancing skills on the low ropes course, tried their hand at archery, had another swim, attempted to find all the markers when Geo Caching, ventured out on a night hike and watched the rest of the movie. After a fabulous night’s sleep they played some initiative games and learnt a new game called ‘Ga-Ga’. The food was delicious and thankfully there was plenty of it as the boys were ravenous at each meal. The boys were most helpful when it was time to set the tables and serve the food and they even vacuumed the dining room afterwards – for some this was also a new experience! We have come home with many fond memories and a great feeling of fulfilment.
