Year 6 Camp – Thursday

We woke up to a warm and windy day where we all had to practise our great Aussie salute to keep the flies away. Armed with lots of sunscreen we headed to our activities with one change. our Kayakers became Boogie Boarders. The cool change was a brief shower that brought relief from the heat and we continued on. for our last night at camp we feasted on chicken schnitzel, roast vegies and yummy salads, topped off with ice cream cones. Tonight we will be putting on our disco gear to party the night away.
