Reflection Camp

In Week 6, the Year 8 students of Marymount Campus enjoyed a 3 day camp/wellbeing experience at Adare Camp in Victor Harbor. The camp was run by Beyond Limits, which is made up of a team of enthusiastic and lively instructors who lead us during the many enjoyable outdoor activities including Body-boarding, Raft Making, Biking and Beach Games. Our camp included some fun competition between the classes who were called 'Tribes' and had a point system based on our levels of participation, encouragement and teamwork.

On our second day, we spent the day doing reflective activities around the theme of 'hope.' There was a focus on Marcellin Champagnat and transitioning into a Marist School Community which was led by our youth ministers. There were some heavy discussions had but seeing each others' emotions bonded us together.

The whole Adare Camp was a great experience. The venue was comfortable and inviting and we enjoyed each other's company. We will have wonderful memories.

Outreach Activity

While on camp at Adare, one of the activities our year level participated in was to make Chocolate Fudge and Easter cards for the residents of our school's local retirement village. Using the 'quilling' craft technique we made Easter cards to go along with the fudge. We had a lot of fun and felt proud knowing that we were giving back to our community.

The day after we came back from camp, the Year 8 Class Captains hand delivered the treats to the residents. Seeing how happy and grateful the citizens were when they saw us visiting with a gift, was a really special experience to be a part of.
