Quote of the Day
The people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are ones who do.
A word from our Campers
I went to Pax Hill. I was a bit scared at the activity but I faced my fears and kept going.
I managed to do the activity at Pax Hill even though I had a sore arm.

The Escape Room was cool. We worked as a team even though we didn't really know each other.
I really liked the stand up paddle boarding and the dragon boats. And also the butterflies are cool. I made my own paper as well.
The croissants for breakfast were delicious.
I loved the lasagne and chocolate mousse. I'm looking forward to the tacos tomorrow.
Today I went caving in Hamilton. We went through a cave that hadn't been professionally explored. We went through to see if we could get to another cave system.
I went on the Melbourne Wanderers Expedition. At the Eureka Skydeck there was Virtual Reality room with glasses, sounds and smells. Today we went to the Queen Victoria market.
I liked the stand-up paddle boarding. I stood up and only fell in once.
My favourite part of the day was going on stage at the campfire and singing Lady Leary.
I enjoyed Pax Hill.
I went on the Pages and Puzzles Expedition in Melbourne and went to 2 Escape Rooms.
I really enjoyed the activities at Pax Hill.
I enjoyed the activities at Lake Wendouree. Especially the dragon boating. It was fun.
My favourite activity was definitely the raft building. I leant a bunch of new knots, like the square lash. Our raft went the furthest. And the paddle boats are great.
I enjoyed Camp Colosseum and trying to work out who stole Pebbles. I printed a name tag with a laser cutter and decorated the cover of my diary with drawings.
I enjoyed the dragon boat at Lake Wendouree. There were lots of people working together on the same boat so it wasn't chaotic. I loved the lasagne and mousse.
