Year 7 Benilde Camp

On Wednesday, 12 February Year 7 Benilde travelled to Jan Juc for the first of the Year 7 camps.

We participated in lots of different activities. First we had a snorkelling lesson at Queenscliff beach. We saw various sea creatures including a sting ray, crabs, fish and even a small shark!

At the campsite we played beach cricket which was really fun and we got to have a swim after the game which was even more fun. We also had a surfing lesson at Torquay beach. A lot of boys got the hang of standing up and catching a wave. We had a great time and this was definitely our best activity during the camp. Beach olympics was also great and we all had to rely on our team mates during the various activities.

Our teachers Mr Locke, Mr Clements and Mr Dickinson were awesome and kind. The point of the Year 7 camp was to get to know one another and not only did we do that but we have already made a whole lot of new friendships. I’m sure we will always remember our time at Jan Juc camp. It was a great start to our first year at secondary school.
