Morwell Park PS Year 6 Camp Blog


From the 12th to the 14th of July, Morwell Park PS brought their grade 6’s along for an epic, action-packed three days and we loved working with them throughout their camp!


On Wednesday you had a moment to settle in before you were introduced to your coaches that would help you reach awesome super stretches throughout the rest of the week. The epic people you met on Wednesday were: Sarah, Adam, Sunny, and Zoe! After you met us, you were introduced to our Five Keys that helped you push yourselves and have an epic journey during your time at camp. These Summit keys are:

  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


We hope you can use these in your day-to-day life out in the real world! Suddenly it was time to jump into our first activities! We started with initiatives that threw you into the deep end in terms of teamwork and setting goals on what we wanted to work on in our individual groups. From here on out you were known as:


  1. Just Add Watermelon

  2. Camping Falcons

  3. Rainbow Monster Monkeys

  4. Ducks


After we finished our initiatives it was off to our first activities! With day one finished it was over to your school for the rest of your evening.


Day two was intense! After hearing from Adam about setting daily intentions and what ‘intentions’ actually are, we started with a big game of Pirates. On Wednesday, Sunny shared with us an epic way to break things down into three steps, and how to set really cool goals. The way we did this was with something called ‘Target, Stretch and Super Stretch’. Sunny told us that a target was something we knew we could definitely do, a stretch was something we could do if we pushed ourselves and a super stretch was something we thought was impossible, the thing we were avoiding. Which hopefully would help you push yourself further than you thought you could go. Also on Wednesday, you would have already experienced two of the activities you were experiencing over camp.

But overall your entire camp consisted of:

Snowy River Challenge

Giant Swing

High Wire

Rock wall

Inflatables

Cave

Flying Fox

Laser Skirmish


After those activities you got to debrief, in your debriefs you learned what the activities were all about and how you can take those lessons back to school. Then, on Thursday afternoon, it was time for our 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! If you’d like to see how your team shaped up, please check the table below.



On Friday it dawned on us that we would have to say goodbye, so after listening to Adam speak to you about intentions and how you can show up for you and your team, Sunny jumped in front of you all and spoke to you about gratitude! Sunny had an epic session planned for us. You got to finish off the last two activities you hadn’t tried yet and then unfortunately it came time to say goodbye. Your values winners were recognized by all of you for sticking to the Five Keys the most and being great team players. You should be immensely proud of yourselves Caitlyn, Reece, Nevaeh, and Chris! These epic legends were given the opportunity of riding in our tank as a reward for being recognized by their teammates. And then your teachers gave it a crack! The rest of us were lucky enough to watch them crush a car!



We are so beyond grateful for how hard you tried, how much growth you experienced, and how much fun we all had during your three-day-long camp. Continue being incredible humans, don’t forget the lessons you learned, and keep pushing your comfort zone, you’re all going to do some incredible stuff when you get back to school! What a way to start the term!


Your family in blue,

Sarah, Sunny, Adam, and Zoe!
