Year 8 Camp


Recently the Year 8 Students went on their annual Year level camp for a truly Australian Bush Adventure. For the first time, the students stayed at Bornhoffen near Natural Bridge in the Gold Coast Hinterland. The campsite was located in a deep valley with steep mountain walls on either side. The students had an authentic experience of the outdoors with activities such as Hiking uphill through a creek, Abseiling down a waterfall and Canoeing on the Hinze Dam lake. Students gained personal development through the challenges and adventures on camp. Devotions, Praise and Worship were a highlight on both nights. Students heard a message about Comparison and Fear and were encouraged to have a resilient rather than victim mentality in an atmosphere where the presence of God was felt. The camp was filled with many memorable moments allowing the students to demonstrate personal growth, particularly when they faced their fears of heights or water or were pushed through one of the many physically exhausting activities.
