Following on from the Year 7 Orientation Program in Week 1, the Year 7’s from Highton and Bellarine campuses head off to Camp to Cave Hill Creek in Beaufort. The camp is designed to give students an opportunity to form new friendships and immerse themselves in a range of fun activities around the themes building and sustaining friendships, teamwork, effective communication and problem solving skills, respect and resilience.
New student and staff bonds are formed quickly as homerooms are mixed into camp platoons who then participate in challenging, team orientated activities.
Over the 3 days, students were involved in activities such as raft construction, canoeing, low ropes course, bushwalking and the Cave Hill Extreme Triathlon. These activities pushed students out of their comfort zone in a safe yet challenging environment, and in the process naturally fostered relationships and generated a competitive team spirit
It was great to see students encouraging each other and attempting to try activities such as abseiling for the first time. Camp is also a fantastic opportunity for staff and students to see each other in a different light and get to know each other outside of the classroom environment.
The staff at Cave Hill Creek welcomed the group and helped make the stay a memorable experience. The students were wonderful ambassadors for Christian College and displayed great manners and respect for others at all times. The camp out experience for our students is not only a highlight of our time spent in Beaufort but another opportunity for them to show just how quickly they have bonded and grown as a group.
