Year 6 Camp is one of the highlights of the school calendar, and once again Hillcrest had the privilege of taking all Year 6 students to QCCC Mapleton, on the Sunshine Coast. From July 26 - July 28, our campers were treated to the most amazing food, sleeping quarters and facilities, but the activities were definitely the highlight. Students put their navigational talents to the test with Orienteering, Canoeing and Bush Skills, and were able to test their courage and coordination, during the harnessed 10 metre rock climbing wall and 20 metre abseiling challenges. To top off the thrills, the Giant Swing was another heart pumping ride that took students 15 metres above the ground, to swing out above the beautiful rainforest.
The Year 6 teaching team were blessed to have witnessed so many memorable moments. It was inspirational and encouraging to see the camaraderie, team work, joy, fear (turn to confidence), and the friendships formed this year at Mapleton.
