The recent Year 8 camp to Stronghills was a great success, with the boys enjoying a variety of activities including archery, canoeing, bush biology, survival skills, camp cooking and team strategy games.
The highlights were the hike and the mountain biking where the boys left Stronghills and ventured into the Avon Valley National Park where they camped overnight. Those who hiked to that site then mountain biked back the next day whilst those who had ridden the previous day then hiked back.
Initially there was some concern that the 30 kilometre bike ride might be too challenging for the boys but they managed it in style.
Thanks must go to Jason Eccles at Malaga Cycles for organising a fleet of Giant mountain bikes for the teachers and instructors to ride.
Well done to the boys, the teachers and the instructors who all contributed to this successful camp.
