Cire Community School Berwick Years 7 to 9 Camp Blog

The epic return of Cire Community School Berwick to The Summit was music to our ears!  We were absolutely stoked that we could work with Jo, Hayley, Anthony and this incredible school again. Those feelings were validated as soon as we met the students. There was literally no time at all before Sophie and Lola made an impression. Zoe and I led everyone into the Blue Room to introduce ourselves and our Five Keys of Have Fun, Play All In, Make Mistakes, Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable and Don’t Go Home Wondering What If, before playing a couple of games, showing everyone our harnesses and how to set themselves epic goal-setting technique called Targets, Stretches and Super Stretches, and getting into our first couple of activities.

We were looking forward to more of a team experience having such a small number of students, and the camaraderie was instant. We started Wednesday off with our Bush Challenge and Rock Wall It was obvious after the first few activities that Lexi, Alli, Mya and Zoe were experts in teamwork.

Thursday morning was kicked off with a chat about things we can say to improve the day of those around us as well as ourselves. Kid President was the star of the show but it was a good chat.

With our first round of activities we promised to challenge them and did with the Summit Window, but Ethan was more excited with our Cave, a challenging adventure in darkness and silence. It was an awesome morning. That afternoon we tried our Giant Swing, with Eleanor and Renae being the most challenged by the activity! It was also great to see Rob and Anthony putting their hands up for as much as the kids did. The rapport was amazing.

The afternoon was dominated, however, by our epic Monster Course. Two laps around an epic group of tasks and challenges, with more fun than anyone expected. Ronen, Cayden and Levi dominated the course, getting behind everyone and championing the tyres they had to carry as well, while Millie was an excellent course photographer and Lola was our fangirl extraordinaire. We were also able to finish off the experience with a Waterslide visit, the highlight of Zoe’s experience.

Thursday night was a bit quieter, and Friday bought our final two activities. We walked the High Wire, with Elanor again leading the way in fearlessness and Lachie as an expert belayer. We then moved over to the Abseiling tower, where quite a few of the students had a chance to push themselves as far as they could up our tower and out. Noone did it quite as well as Blake, however, who after being nervous just to make it up, was back for a second turn in no time.

We then asked everyone to vote on who they thought gave everything they could over the whole camp to be our Values winner, or the person that best represented the Five Key values The Summit holds. Eleanor, Levi, Seline and Lexi were clear winners and rewarded with a ride in our WW2 Army Tank. Unfortunately Ethan couldn’t quite see out the camp to get to see the tank, but hopefully Kayden got enough photos and videos for him.

A massive thank you to Jo, Hayley, Anthony, Renae, Aurora, Rob and all the students and teachers from Cire Community School for all the effort they put in to make this camp as amazing as it was. Zoe and I can't wait to see you back again very soon.
