ACTIVITIES

Sunday 19th January – After picking everyone up we stopped at San Remo for lunch which consisted of fish and chips.  We got to the camp site late afternoon where we unpacked, unwound and did our introductions.  After dinner we had an activity which involved team work.  The teams were set up and had to stay that way for all activities for the week to earn points.  A puzzle book was started for the first activity.

Monday 20th January – Went to see the pelicans get fed this morning.  Gee they are hungry little munchkins.  After lunch we played a game of charades and strategies in our teams.  This was followed by a memory game.  The Charles Sturt students held the nights activity with a big board game.

Tuesday 21st January – Origami and bubbles were made in the morning.  Just after lunch VEWSA visited and held a hockey demonstration.  All campers got involved in the games.  A fashion parade was held in the afternoon which consisted of people getting dressed up in shopping bags.  From here we played a game called egg catcher.  Heaps of fun.  We had a movie night in the evening.

Wednesday 22nd January – In the morning a visit to the Koala Sanctuary was in order.  Cute to see those little things in their “natural” habitat.  An obstacle course and swimming took up the afternoon.  A game of food olympics was held in the evening.  When one team got disqualified for cheating a full on chocolate pudding war broke out.  There was pudding on everyone and everywhere.  What a sight to see.

Thursday 23rd January – As the day turned out to be beautiful, a lot of people went swimming again for the day. The others played ping pong and board games.  It was a leisurely day.  Mr Karaoke strummed those tunes for our final evening party.  Again some terrible voices were heard.

Friday 24th January – After a late night a sleep was in order for all.  Brunch was served and camper/carer photo’s were taken.  Then we were on our way home.  What an end to yet another great camp.

HIGHLIGHTS

The food fight was fun for all who participated.

The evening after dinner walks were great fun.  Helped us walk off dinner.

The weather and the venue was kind to us.  Sunny skies and reasonably good food always keeps campers and carers happy.
