Theme: Connections

The purpose of the Year 7 Camp Program is to develop positive relationships within self, peers, the environment and adventure. Activities are specifically targeted to the theme “Connections”, where students are, by nature of the task, required to physically and emotionally rely on and support each other. The focus throughout the program works through appropriate behaviours and attitudes as they impact our vital connections day to day.

The theme Connections is explored, referred to and reflected using the model of “Helps & Hinders”. Critical thinking around behaviours and attitudes of what hinders building positive connections is explored. The aim of camp is to develop behaviours and attitudes that help create and maintain positive connections. Students participating in this program, work towards early stages of personal and social competence and ethical behaviour as they start to construct relationships within the cohort, and work towards an attitude of environmental stewardship. The program will engage students to actively work towards building positive connections with: self, peers, the environment and their experiences.
