What an amazing camp it has been with the students and teachers from Mordialloc College. With the new school year only beginning one week ago, it was time for the year sevens to really bond and get to know the rest of their year level at The Summit during their three day camp.
After meeting The Summit team and groups establishing their tribe names, there was no time to waste as each of them began their camp with an initiative and then straight into their activity rotations. Each tribe got to experience 7 activities with a mixture of high, low, under ground and team building activities.
Here are some of the camp highlights from the tribe challenge activities and some honourable mentions for amazing efforts made during activities:
Hunter showed great initiative for his tribe during the photo scavenger hunt.
Jules and Ethan had some amazing skills during the two ball knock out game.
Amy from the Bruces did a great job on the monkey bars for her tribe.
Christian from Pickled Space Donkeys was so brave on the high wire, he had the whole tribe supporting him to get up, and then onto the middle of the cable to meet up with Sasha who was also a great help.
Janelle did a super human job on the belay system, almost belaying everyone up and always helping her tribe.
Snowy River Challenge: Crazy Coconuts came in 3rd with a time of 26.48, Um James came 2nd in a time of 26.36 and the winners were…..………… Sexy Saxophone in a time of 20.48. Well done to all tribes for the amazing efforts during the Snowy River Challenge.
