The Year 9s travelled to Numinbah Valley in the Gold Coast Hinterland for four days of camping. The warm, early Spring weather provided clear blue skies during the day for the activity sessions. The girls participated in mountain biking, crate climb, hiking, team challenge and dragon boating. The first day they arrived mid-morning, having the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the base camp and meet their CYC group leaders. After lunch the girls headed out for their first activity session, returning late afternoon to face the challenge of erecting their tents. No one had a tent capsize during the night so they did well.
Though the nights were cool the girls were comfortable in their tents rugged up in their sleeping bags. The groups headed out for activity sessions with a CYC leader and a Glennie staff member in the mornings and afternoons, returning to base camp for lunch and dinner to share the stories of their activity and feed their hearty appetites.
Each night the girls eagerly participated in activities. The trivia night tested their general knowledge and brought out their creativity when they didn’t have an answer. On the final night there was a campfire to share toasted marshmallows and stories of appreciation for their fellow camp mates.
Thank you to the staff that attended camp, supporting and encouraging the girls, making the camp an enjoyable and memorable experience. Mrs Holley, Mrs Sullivan, Miss Theobald, Mrs Wheatley and Libby Stumer (boarding).
