During the second week of Term 1, Year 5 BGS boys went to Golden Valley Lodge in Flinders for their school camp. During the camp they participated in many fun and challenging outdoor education experiences. These included surfing, a giant swing, archery, a low ropes course, flying fox, cycling and ponding. To improve their camping skills, they learned how to put up a tent and use outdoor camping equipment to make hot chocolate. At night, the boys enjoyed a camp Olympics, a trivia night and performed an original skit.
Camp provided the boys with the opportunity to develop their independence while also giving many opportunities to work together as a team. Firm friendships were forged as the boys were given a wonderful opportunity to get to know their new class mates in a setting outside of the classroom.
