Red Cross Cadets in Years 8-10 were given the chance to live out an experience normally reserved for a television show. Reminiscent of the Survivor Series, the cadets spent 3 days near Augusta, taking each other on in tribal challenges.
The annual camp is a regular on the Red Cross Cadets calendar, and this year, 61 students took on the challenges and learnt a lot about themselves and each other on the way.
Students were given the chance to abseil, work in their tribes to build a raft, canoe down the river and experience the terrain by mountain bike. The students camped out on a private property based on the banks of the Blackwood River, and along with the 7 participating staff, got to experience camping in its most rustic form.
David and Peter Cohen , through their business ‘Edge Tours’ provided a professional element to the higher risk activities.
On one evening, Pastor Noel Kara spent time with the participants, challenging them to look closely at some important life matters, and his words were well recieved.
Many of the students have participated in this annual event in previous years, but are always enthusiastic about the opportunities the camp provides. A great tool to build relationships, discover and challenge personal matters, as well as developing team work.
