Year 11 Camp – Emu Gulley

Year 11 Camp – Emu Gully

In week 1 of this term, our Year 11 cohort headed to Emu Gully for a 4-day camp. The motto of Emu Gully is Shaping Great Australians and they certainly do a great job of this.

On the first day of camp, the students quickly learnt, after arriving late to their first scheduled meeting on the air strip, that push-ups would become a regular task if they didn’t pick up their act and be self-lead rather than relying on staff for instructions.

On the second night of camp was the semi-formal event. The gentleman did a fantastic job of looking after the ladies, after an inspiring ‘boys only’ talk with Mr Sterling.

Throughout the week students engaged in several team-based activities which are designed to challenge them and provide opportunities for teamwork and leadership. Some of the highlights included the Kokoda mud run, skirmish, buggies and a night walk.

Both Emu Gully and Genesis staff were blown away by the student engagement throughout the camp and the level of growth they saw in only 4 days.

One of the key themes the cohort took home from the camp was that they are all about to become the leaders of the College. The only question is, are they going to lead from the front, the middle or the back?

We look forward to seeing how they lead the College next year.

Kind Regards,
