Sensational Sixes

Grade 6 Camp!

That time had arrived- GRADE 6 CAMP!!! My bags were packed the previous night, but I still had that feeling that I’d left something behind. Upon arrival at school, nervous and excited chatter could be heard from the Grade 6’s. We later climbed the buses- strapped in and off we went…

Upon arrival, the view was beautiful. The children unpacked their bags, played a few ice breakers and then got to see which cabins they were in.

The day was full with good food, good times and fun activities. The highlight being an awesome night hike. A rather successful first day.

The second day began with the sounds of children ready for breakfast. We then went on a beach walk and the children were put into small groups and were briefed to build the best sandcastle possible. To make the day even better and action packed- they participated in an obstacle course. The children were later blessed with a lovely visit from Mr. Preston. The evening ended with archery, a drum session, wall climbing and loads more. Needless to say- not a peep was heard from the children that night.

Our last day arrived and bags were packed, put in the bus and off we went. We may have left Rocklands but it will be a camp that will be remembered for years to come!
