Poowong Consolidated PS Year 5-6 Camp Blog

From the 12th of May to the 17th, The Summit was lucky enough to work with the year 5’s and 6’s from Poowong Consolidated PS and we had the greatest time!

On a Monday 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. These coaches were: Sarah, Sam, and Sophie! 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. Our Five 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. After those activities, we had our group names! From here on out you were known as:

1. Magpies

2. Cassowaries

3. Emus

After we finished our initiatives it was off to our first activities! After that, we started to create our team flags and they were stunning! With day one finished it was over to your school for the rest of your evening.

Day two was intense! After hearing from Sarah about setting daily intentions and what ‘intentions’ actually are, we started with a big game of Huckle Buckle. On Monday, Sarah 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’. Sarah 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. With this in our toolbox of strategies, we headed off to the activities we’d be focusing on for the next day. On Monday you would’ve tried one of the activities we were completing which were:

  • Flying Fox

  • Cave

  • Inflatable City

There were also three activities you got to experience between the second and third day which were:

  • Bush Challenge

  • High wire

  • Snake and Nails

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. Later, 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 Sam 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 is shaped up, don’t forget to check the table.

On Wednesday it dawned on us that we would have to say goodbye, so after listening to Sarah speak to you about intentions and how you can show up for you and your team, Sam jumped in front of you all and spoke to you about gratitude! Sam 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 got the incredible opportunity of riding in our World War 2 army tank after being nominated by their groups for sticking to our Five Keys the most over camp – you should be immensely proud of yourselves Jackson, Palice, and Rohan! Then it was time for our last goodbyes and you were on the bus.

We are so beyond grateful for how hard you tried, how much growth you experienced, and how much fun we all had during your week-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!

Your family in blue,

Sarah, Sam, and Sophie.
