Year 8 Camp 2023

Year 8 camp created unforgettable memories this year. From challenging obstacles to remarkable achievements, our students showcased their determination, resilience, and spirit of camaraderie throughout the entire experience.

The Year 8 camp, held at the picturesque Kenilworth Adventure Alternatives, was designed to push our students beyond their comfort zones and help them discover the strength within themselves. And it’s safe to say that the camp lived up to its promise, delivering a series of challenges that not only tested our students’ physical abilities but also fostered teamwork and personal growth.

One of the most inspiring aspects of the camp was witnessing how our students overcame obstacles. From ropes courses to hiking adventures, every activity presented a unique challenge that required courage, determination, and trust in themselves and their peers. The sight of students conquering their fears, encouraging one another, and celebrating their victories was truly heartwarming.

Here are some quotes from students, when asked about the challenges of camp:

“My biggest challenge on camp was the giant’s ladder because it was really high up and I struggled with getting up. I dealt with this by having supportive friends around me to help.”

“The biggest challenge for me was starting a conversation with someone I wouldn’t usually talk to.”

As we reflect on the accomplishments of the Year 8 camp, we are reminded of the words of Helen Keller: “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” The experiences shared during the camp have undoubtedly strengthened Year 8’s characters and inspired ambitions that will continue to drive their success in the years ahead.
