School Holiday Camps

October 2013 School Holiday Survivor Camp Review

72 students from Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast took part in the October School Holiday Camp.  It was pleasing to see so many returning students.  48 of the students had participated previously, so it’s great to see them wanting to spend part of their holidays in the survivor program.  The camp changes slightly each holiday period, to accommodate these returning students.  During this camp, the students were involved in abseiling, milk crate climb, archery, raft building, canoeing and fishing.  The students enjoyed great success in the fishing component.  The catch was predominantly Australian bass, with one silver perch and eel tailed catfish also being caught.  There were plenty of solid bass over the 40cm mark caught, and on light gear provided the students with plenty of exciting moments.

Special thanks to L. Wilson & Co for providing prizes for the camp.

Dear Steve,
Just wanted to pass on our thanks on behalf of Finny and to you and all involved in the sports tuition camp over the last few days.  Finny had a wonderful time and is already looking forward to next year.   
Cheers and thanks again

Hi Steve
Just wanted to say a huge thanks for last week’s camp.  Ruth had a fantastic time, and we heard all about the great activities and games eg. crate towers.  It would have been a handful too with that many kids, but it’s awesome to give them those memories.
Thanks a lot, you’re a legend, Justin Boyle
Thanks Steve,
Tinashe had a wonderful time again
Hi Steve,
Our 10 year old son had a fantastic time at camp. He thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and the made some good friends along the way. When asked “what was the best part?”  He told me it was being responsible for yourself and working it out as a team. That both pleased and surprised my wife and I, as we were expecting him to rattle off a variety of activities!  He did provide plenty of stories about the fun things they did and he seemed to have actually gained in social maturity, which as a parent was pleasing. Our son definitely benefitted from the activities and the environment whilst having non-stop fun. We will be sending him next year for sure.

Wow Steve. Tyra is sooooo excited to be in a fishing magazine and is so proud. What great photos. Tyra had a fantastic time even though she came on her own this time at just eight years old. She was very brave and loved the experience. Bring on the next camp! Thanks for taking such good care of her.
Kind regards
