Belgrave Heights Christian School Year 10 Blog
On a cool Monday afternoon, the school of Belgrave Heights Christian School Year 10s came through The Summit gates. Eager to get going they were shown their accommodation to settle in.

To start off, the tribe got their bodies moving by playing a game called ‘Big Star, Little Star’.
In the last debrief the tribes completed a strategy called ‘Rock, Stick and Leaf’ where the students were told to reflect upon camp and the growth that has been shown. The team also voted for tribe winners, someone who represented the Five Keys throughout camp, they were;
