Year 4s Enjoy their First Camp

View the Year 4 Camp Photo Album

Armed with their pillows and backpacks, and showing some mixed emotions, our Year 4s set off for their first offsite camp this week at the Gold Coast Recreation Centre, in Tallebudgera. Clear blue skies and warm winter weather provided the perfect climate for their coastal camp experience which involved an action-packed three days of beach games, bodyboarding, canoeing, the giant swing, rock climbing and much more. Evening devotions were also a highlight for the cohort, setting aside time to create closer connections with God.

King’s camps are an important part of every students’ learning and growth, giving them the chance to develop physically and emotionally as they face fun challenges in a safe and supportive setting. Camps are also a time when new friendships are formed and strengthened, as students enjoy socialising away from school. This year, more than ever before, opportunities like this must be treasured, and it was exciting to see every student show courage as they wholeheartedly embraced the Year 4 camp experience.
