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.
