Clarinda Primary School Year 5 & 6 Camp Blog

We were so excited to see the buses from Clarinda Primary School roll through the gates of The Summit for the first time on an unusually warm Wednesday morning, but we weren’t the only ones hopping and jumping around preparing for what was going to be an amazing week. The energy and enthusiasm of all the students were almost out of control and we loved it. The other coaches and I gathered in the lodge with them 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 heading down into the park, playing a game, showing everyone our harnesses and how to set themselves our goal-setting technique called Targets, Stretches and Super Stretches, and getting into our first round of activities.

High Wire and the Flying Fox were the instant highlights, the Bush Challenge was epic, the Inflatables and Initiative Challenges were fun, and the Rockwall was not what anyone expected. After our first rotation, it was time to sit and create a Tribe Identity for each group. The imagination and excitement were very obvious from the flags and chants created.

Towards the end of the first day, and as a way of establishing themselves as a tribe, each group was asked to come up with a name for themselves that was agreed upon by all, and these are the names they came up with:

Grp 1 - Crazy Braveroos

Grp 2 - Kool Koalas

Grp 3 - Fearless Wombats

Grp 4 - Platerbosses

Grp 5 - Dangerous Emus

Grp 6 - Midnight Crocs

After an evening of Minute to Win It on Wednesday, Thursday was kicked off with a morning Intentions chat from Kid President before getting straight into the next rounds of activities. The afternoon turned out to be a very warm one, so it was started slowly but spent getting as sweaty, dirty, and wet as possible on our epic Monster Course, a run around the shady grounds of The Summit involving tyres, charades, dirt, cargo nets, holey buckets, water, a ball pit, and a whole lot of fun! The course was scored using each team's improvement time from the first lap to the surprise second lap, with everyone doing amazingly, but being dominated by The Fearless Wombats!

After what was the highlight of the camp for most of the kids, a Silent Disco on Thursday night, Friday started with another chat about gratitude in the form of another chat from Kid President before thinking about all the things in our lives that we are grateful for. After this, we went down into the park for our last round of activities.

We then asked each of the kids to vote on a Values winner, or the person in their group they felt used our Five Keys the best to make camp a rewarding experience for not only themselves but their whole team. The winners are listed below with all the times for each of the recordable activities.  We gathered at Tractor Tyres for the last time to say our thank yous to all the people involved in making this camp epic before reading out the winners of the various activities and rewarding our Values Winners with a ride on our WW2 ARMY TANK!

Thank you so much to Justine, Robbie, the carers, teachers, and students of Clarinda Primary School for an awesome week. You were all so incredibly dedicated to ensuring your camp was an amazing experience. We at The Summit can’t wait to have you back again soon.
