Sandringham PS Year 6 Camp Blog

When the buses from Sandringham Primary School rolled through the gates of The Summit on an unusually overcast Wednesday morning, we were preparing for what was going to be an amazing week. The energy and enthusiasm of all the students was almost out of control and we loved it. The other coaches and I gathered in the Stadium 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 playing a couple of games, showing everyone our harnesses and how to set themselves Targets, Stretches and Super Stretches, and getting into our first couple of rounds of activities.

Tash’s Ladder and the Flying Fox were the instant highlights, the Bush Challenge was epic, and it was just fun to sit and create a Tribe Identity for each group. There were definitely many personal boundaries pushed and fears overcome, with too many kids to mention pushing beyond what they first thought they were capable of.

Toward the end of the first day, each group was asked to come up with a name for themselves that was agreed upon by all, and these are their group names:

Grp 1 - Pickle Nuggets

Grp 2 - The Mud Monsters

Grp 3 - Smidgen Pigeons

Grp 4 - The Green Team

After a trivia night on Wednesday, Thursday was kicked off with a morning intentions chat from Kid President before getting straight into the next round of activities. The afternoon turned out to be a bit wet and cool, but everyone was so into the activities we couldn’t tell.

Before Lunch we had the opportunity to start another round of activities, this time introducing the students to our epic Rock Wall, dark and creepy Cave experience, exciting Inflatable City, and one of our most challenging activities on camp, Abseiling off the Big Tower! It was so awesome to see almost every student give it a go!

Thursday afternoon we also embarked on our epic Monster Course, a mud run around the grounds of The Summit involving tyres, charades, mud, cargo nets, holey buckets, mud, a ball pit, and more mud! 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 Mud Monsters, who couldn’t have named themselves better!

Friday started with another chat about Gratitude in the form of giving and receiving Street Compliments before we completed our 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 5 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 on the stage to say our thank you's to all the people involved in making this camp epic before reading out the winners of the various activities.

Thank you so much to the parents, teachers, and students of Sandringham 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.
