Belgrave Heights Christian School Year 10 Camp Blog
When you all arrived on the 3rd of April, your coaches were so excited to get started! You had a little bit of a different camp ahead of you – your program was written as a two-day intensive camp, which meant things were about to get a little hectic!
You went straight from a welcome, where you learned the Five Keys of camp:
1. Have Fun
2. Play All In
3. Make Lots of Mistakes
4. Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable
5. Don’t Go Home Wondering What If
And where you also learned how to set really epic goals using our ‘Target, Stretch and Super Stretch’ strategy, and got stuck into your activities straight away! We did a whopping 3 hours of activities and our epic mud run – The Monster Course - if you’d like to know how you did in the timed activities and the mud run, have a squiz at the table below!
Your activities and the way they were structured were designed to help you unleash your greatness and sometimes that meant you’d have to be working as a team and pushing each other to go faster and come together as one unit. Some others were a little more personal, up a tower with others but doing the activity by yourself, or perhaps in pairs. The solo activities hopefully helped you unleash your greatness by asking you to challenge some beliefs you had about some potential fears – like for example maybe some of you began the journey of overcoming your fear of heights. Maybe you’re not all that chuffed on tight spaces – maybe that was your challenge or maybe it was to actually touch a snake or walk across nails! Whichever challenge resonated with you, we hope that each activity at the very least brought some fun into your day!
And then, after you tried your first three activities it was time for the epic, long-awaited Monster Course! We got absolutely filthy, we had so much fun and we pushed ourselves as hard as we could! We got an awesome time for our first lap, but then your coaches had broken it to you that throughout all of camp, we were pushing you to be incredible humans and doing things you never thought you could’ve done before, so off we went again! We did a second lap and it was so epic, we pushed our boundaries yet again, is probably the biggest way we ever could! We worked incredibly as a team, we worked out how we could be a little faster in places but above all, we looked out for and supported each other the best we could and the results were awesome!
On Tuesday you got to experience the last two activities you hadn’t tried yet and then it was onto three new activities! The activities the day before had definitely worked you up to finishing camp with a bang! Speaking of, unfortunately, it had dawned on us that when we had finished our five activities throughout the day, you were going home. So as we wrapped it up, we asked you to vote for one person from your group that stuck to the Five Keys the most throughout camp and they got the incredible opportunity to go for a hot lap in our WW2 army tank! The people you voted for were:
We hope you had the most incredible time with us at camp and we were so grateful to have met you all! Best of luck with all your future endeavors!
From your family in blue.
