The Year 5 camp last week included climbing high and low ropes, building rafts and creating dreamcatchers. Students also visited the penguin parade on Phillip Island, had a bonfire and competed in a trivia night. All of this while making new friends, working as a team, supporting each other through homesickness and surviving 37 degrees!
