Noosa Girls Camp


During Term 2, twelve girls were selected from years 9 and 10 to take part in our yearly Noosa Girls Camp. The camp is based at Habitat Noosa Eco Camp where students stay in glamping wilderness safari tents. The girls participate in a range of different activities, such as hiking, mountain biking, surfing and a one-day 4WD Fraser Island tour. The purpose of this camp is to provide students with an opportunity to forge strong relationships with their peers, grow and develop their interpersonal and intrapersonal skills and expand their faith journey

"We did so many activities from hiking up Mount Ngungun to mountain biking and surfing at Noosa and even getting a tour around Fraser Island. My favourite activity was probably the hike. It was so peaceful and a great way to explore nature up in Noosa and the view when you got to the top was so rewarding.

What I enjoyed about this camp was getting to know my teachers better and connecting with girls on camp that I probably wouldn't have talked to at school if it wasn't for this camp. It was so amazing bonding with all these girls and teachers on camp. I also really enjoyed devotions, it was probably one of my favourite parts of camp because we could all come together and listen to each other and the word of god in such a beautiful place.

The main thing I got out of this camp was that it's ok to be pushed out of your comfort zone every once in a while. Some of the activities we did and even some things at devotions pushed me out of my comfort zone. But I look back now at camp and I think if I didn't do everything I did, I would regret it so much.

My overall experience at Noosa was amazing! Between surfing on the beach to devotions around a campfire, it was such a great experience. If a girl from grade 9 next year was to ask me if she should go on the trip I would say yes 10 times over. I can't wait to see what it brings next year!" said Year 9 student,  Belle Hume.

Another account from Year 9 student, Mariana Diaz, was how she saw her friendships develop with all the girls that went and the bond we all built together. "One of my favourite memories was probably the last night's devotions around the campfire. Everything about it was perfect, what we talked about, the laughs, the cries and most of all the atmosphere that we had was unforgettable. I was and still am shocked that quickly we got comfortable around each other's company. I probably couldn't pick a favourite memory if I had to choose one. All the activities we did were so different but relevant at the same time.  In everything that we did, I grew a unique bond with the girls." 

What did you get out of the camp?

"This was definitely a very unique but special school camp experience! I definitely learned a lot of life skills through all the activities we participated in. I grew a lot closer with my peers at school, teachers, and most importantly my relationship with God." Mariana shared.
