Hoppers Crossing SC Blog



On Monday the 19th of October, we welcomed a group of year 9 legends from Hoppers Crossing. It was a pleasure to have you all. So many students pushed themselves outside of their comfort zones on multiple occasions. What an incredible bunch of humans. You should all be very proud of yourselves. Over camp, there were many cool things to be learned. Such as The Summit's Five Keys.

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


Many of the students played all in and used these 5 Keys on numerous occasions. So well done to you all, we hope you keep using these keys and keep having all the FUN!


To start camp off the students played a fun game of 50 Up. Once our bodies were warmed up it was time to split off into our groups. In total there were 8 groups. Each team had an initiative to complete in 10 minutes and had the opportunity to create a team name. To those who successfully completed the challenge well done to those who didn’t, it led to a productive de-brief of things to improve on for the next activity. Once the student then learned how to put on a harness it was time to rock and roll.


The afternoon consisted of leaping off a 12-meter platform at the Leap of Faith. What a prime example of getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. The Bush Snowy River Challenge had students working together in a team racing the clock, it involved climbing out things, over things, running around things, and thinking outside the square. Well done to the teams who really worked together the get through the course. However, the fun didn’t stop there the students found themselves flying over The Summit's lake on the Flying Fox, walking over the wobbly Sky Bridge, scurrying up the Rock Walls in record time, trusting the team had their backs literally when completing the Trust Game exercise and lucky last running around The Summit to locate all the orienteering points.


The joy of having so many groups meant that there where a range of activities that required different skill sets. To those who challenged themselves and stepped outside their comfort zones, well done!!! That’s what it’s all about.

And for those who hit their super stretches. You should all be very proud of yourselves. We hope that you keep giving everything your very best.


After a good night’s sleep and some delicious breakfast, it was time to start the day off by setting ourselves a morning intention. As the saying goes 'win the morning, win the day. We hope by thinking about who you wanted to be for the day and how you wanted to show up, it helped you achieve some incredible super stretches.


As the day passed by it was time to embark on The Summit's very own Mud Run, what lovely weather we were blessed with that afternoon. Awesome efforts to every team who gave it their all. Not only did the students complete the course once but TWICE. What an incredible job! Each team was timed, the first lap was to see how fast they could go and the second was to see how much faster they could run the lap when they were wet, tired, and dirty. The Mud Run is all about reliance and seeing what you are truly capable of when you feel like you have nothing left in the tank. What a way to bring the afternoon to a close. Safe to say all the students were excited to jump in the warm shower and have some hot spaghetti with garlic bread for dinner followed by a movie in the Lodge.


As the next morning rolled around, we spent time thinking about all the things, we have to be grateful for in our world we started our last two activities will a full cup of love for the things we have in our lives. When you take a second every day to think about all the things you have to be grateful for it's hard to be sad. Thank you to those who shared a few things they were grateful for. To complete our final debrief we asked the students to vote for one person in the group who they believed truly embraced all of The Summit's Five Keys. Congratulation to the following students:
