What Teachers are saying about The Summit.
Hello, my name is Jason Boyce and I was one of the staff on the recent Norwood SC visit from 30/8 -1/9. I wanted to pass on some personal feedback as I didn't get to upon leaving the camp. I have been a high school teacher for 18 years across 3 different schools, I love camps so always volunteer to go on as many as I can. I can honestly say that my experience last week was the best I have ever had. Please pass on my personal thanks to Logan and his team of coaches. The activities were challenging but fun, students that I witnessed got a lot out of not only each activity but also out of the debriefs with the coaches at the end. The messages of gratitude, teamwork and stepping out of your comfort zone were so relevant and really well received. Again thank you, I've already recommended The Summit to my wife's school :) I can't wait for next year.

What Students are saying about The Summit.
"The Summit, probably the best camp I've ever been to in my life. Besides a few activities, it got me stretched out of my comfort zone. Anyone who is reading this and going to The Summit, but is afraid, I will tell you this. Last year, around this time, on the bus ride there, I wished I didn't go and was getting a little bit homesick. But when I came home, I felt amazing. The Summit helped me build friendships, get more involved, and went to a camp that I will never forget. So try to be the best you can be. Like the saying 'If at first, you don't succeed, try again!'. Thank you The Summit and I will definitely come again. P.S. You have to try the Spirals Bolognaise, it is so good. It's even better than my Mum's!
"This camp was really fun, I met so many new friends. I recommend this camp. I would love to come back!."
"There hasn't been a day since I left camp that I haven't used what I learned and continuously use to change my innermost attitude."
"When I returned home, for the first time I looked at myself in the mirror and saw someone that I was proud of. I saw someone of strength and courage and finally acknowledged a beauty I was once so unaware of.
"I'm so so so grateful I got the opportunity to experience this camp. It was truly something I will not forget. The bond I created with everyone is just crazy. You have changed my life. This whole entire experience has changed my life."
"The greatest 3 days of my life, this camp has changed how I think about people, life, friends, and family. I feel like there is a whole new meaning to life. It's taught me that no matter what you do when you start something see it through to the end, and gain the sense of achievement to be proud."
"I have to make a massive shout-out to my team, what we did, and achieved together as one was amazing. They helped me push through barriers and overcome fears and this wasn't just for me, everyone made an outstanding effort and gained achievements over this time."
"I am so proud of everyone for conquering so much fear, the teamwork was amazing and everyone was there for one another. In a world where human connection has become so much more and more... disconnected, just having 120 people all connecting to one another just gave me so much hope."
"We all had our moments and we were all there to support each other. In fact, the amount of support we have between us was surreal. I came into the camp with my best friend, and we were basically crapping ourselves as we just didn't know what was to come or what to expect. Little did we know that we were going to make some of the most amazing, lifelong friends and discover things about ourselves we never thought possible"
"I have learned so much about myself, and have broken through so many of my personal barriers. Thank you to Tegan, you were such an amazing mentor and really understood and supported us."
