Blue/Gold Remar Embarkation Camp (Issue 3 2016)
Written on the 10 March 2016
On Friday 19 February, 31 Blue and Gold rowers travelled down to the Toc H campsite (Victor Harbor) to complete their 2-day embarkation camp for 2016. Rowers completed sessions about their respective crossings and what values and mottos they will be focussing on for the year ahead. Much fun was had and friends were made over the 2 days before rowers returned to Sacred Heart College on Sunday afternoon. A big thank you to Annicka Adolphi, who helped supervise the students over the weekend. Along with 2016 Remar Team members Damien Ruiz, Sara Petruzzella and Supi Taifa'ao for leading rowers through the varied sessions.
Below are some of the highlights from the rowers:
Shay (Gold) - I really enjoyed Saturday night because we were all able to let out all of the things that were troubling us. Also, the talent night was really fun as loads of people got involved.
Paulina (Blue) - My favourite session was when we went around listing each person's strengths and weaknesses, because I thought it was a really good learning experience for everyone to find out how others see them and I honestly believe it helped bring our caravel even closer together.
Effie (Gold) - I quite liked the reflection session because it was good to open up and listen to everyone and support them through any hardships in their life.
