On the 9 March 2020, Year 4 jumped on a bus searching for the ultimate Aussie Bush adventure. Before us was two nights and three days at the Great Aussie Bush Camp, located at Kincumber on the Central Coast. The buses exploded with excitement for the adventure that lay ahead.
On our arrival, we were met by our camp instructors who would lead us for the three days. They were excited to share with us all the experiences that would be a part of our camp.
We filled our time at the Great Aussie Bush Camp with rock climbing, high ropes, giant swing, archery, pioneering, county fair, a night-time disco and the much anticipated lost island. Oh, and who could forget the SNOW CONES!! The activities encouraged teamwork, perseverance, grit, determination and also pushed us far beyond our comfort zones. Throughout the camp, we watched everyone push their limits and challenge themselves to conquer their fears. Whether it was the height of the giant swing, diving under the freezing cold muddy water of lost island or free dancing at the disco, all the children embraced the adventure.
The county fair and disco were highlights of the night time activities with many children displaying some fantastic business skills and also some mighty fine dance moves. The Year 4 teachers were extremely proud of the achievements of every student at the camp, especially those who conquered the sadness of being away from home. After many discussions about our favourite activities, the giant swing and lost island were voted the best. This result highlights the many adventurers we really took on camp.
The students and teachers had a wonderful time on our ultimate Aussie adventure at the Great Aussie Bush Camp. We can’t wait for next year’s camp, where we know we will be challenged once again to display perseverance and determination.
