The Year 9 Camp took place at Camp Wilkin, Anglesea this year and although the month of July is not noted for the best of weather conditions in Victoria, we were lucky to experience three days of mild and sunny conditions.
After leaving Footscray City College on Monday morning we headed to the Surf Coast via a stop at the Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre near Geelong. Here we learnt more about Indigenous Culture, toured the grounds (meeting emus and other wildlife) and decorated our own individual boomerangs in traditional markings.
Upon arrival at camp, we split into groups for our activities program over the next three days. Surfing, Mountain Biking, Rock Climbing, Canoeing and the challenging High Ropes course tested the comfort zones of all of us. The students (and staff!) displayed a great sense of adventure, fortitudinous and resilience in completing these activities.
I would like to thank both students and staff for making the Anglesea trip an enjoyable and successful camp for all.
