Mud! Muck! Hail! Rain! Our camp at Emu Gully had it all.
The camp was based on the ANZAC values of Courage, Mateship, Sacrifice and Perseverance. It was designed to help us develop leadership skills. We were faced with challenges which pushed us to our limits. In order to complete the tasks, we had to work as a team and support our mates. The activities we did included the Kokoda Track, the Siege of Tobruk, the Bridge over the River Kwai and the Tunnel Rats of Vietnam.
The Emu Gully facilitators, Ethan and Taylor, supported the activities with stories which reflected the courage and heroism shown by the ANZACs during war. The camp was amazing and we had a fabulous time.

‘The Colditz Castle activity was fun as we had to crawl through tunnels and escape the German guard (Ethan) without getting shot!’ Darcy
‘I enjoyed the jumping tower the most as I had to overcome my fear of jumping from a great height.’ Georgia
‘The mud from the Kokoda Track was awesome - it was thick and gooey and we were the dirtiest we had ever been.’ Bella
