Year 2 & 3 Epic Sleepover Camp
Hello fellow adventurers! In Week 5, our school's Auditorium turned into an adventure-filled campsite for an unforgettable sleepover camp with our energetic Year 2 and Year 3 students. It was a whirlwind of laughter, learning and long-lasting memories. So, buckle up and let's journey back to the camp!
Day one began with a friendly 'Welcome to Camp' gathering that set the vibrant tone for our two-day escapade. The auditorium buzzed with excitement as our young campers set up their tents and prepared their cosy beds – a fun-filled exercise of teamwork and problem-solving.
The day continued with the captivating 'Egg Drop' STEM challenge. Students transformed into inventive scientists, designing protective containers to safeguard a raw egg from a great fall. Many eggs miraculously survived their high falls, much to the delight of our junior inventors!
Then it was time to connect with nature. In the Creative Workshop, our campers created beautiful collages from natural materials they found outdoors, like leaves, flowers, grass, twigs and feathers. These nature collages now serve as cherished keepsakes of their adventure.
As the afternoon rolled on, our young chefs got busy preparing the mixture for their damper, a traditional Australian bread. This hands-on activity was met with eager anticipation, adding another layer of excitement to the camp.
As the evening set in, the aroma of a BBQ filled the air. Our campers enjoyed a delicious dinner of sizzling sausages and burgers while showcasing their vocal talents with a lively karaoke session. The combination of good food and good music created a joyful atmosphere that echoed throughout the camp.
With the dusk, our students gathered around the campfire, toasting marshmallows and cooking their dampers on a stick. Their delight was evident as they savoured the fruits of their culinary labour.
The day concluded in the auditorium, now a gigantic living room, with a movie screening on the big screen. Nestled in comfy beanbags, munching on popcorn, our campers laughed and chatted through the movie, drawing an exhilarating day to a close.
Day two began with a lively splash in the swimming pool, followed by a hearty breakfast. Refreshed and recharged, our campers spent a fun-filled morning participating in various team sports, demonstrating fantastic sportsmanship and strengthening friendships.
Throughout the camp, we were immensely proud of the students' positive attitudes, respect for each other and their adventurous spirits.
We extend a warm thank you to all parents and volunteers who helped with food preparation and ensured the event ran smoothly.
Our school sleepover camp was more than just an event – it was an adventure, a celebration of learning and a testament to our students' amazing spirit. As we remember all the fun-filled moments, we're already excited about creating more unforgettable experiences in the future!
