Year 7 Camp at Ashdown Forest 2018

"Year 7 camp has been some of the best days of my life so far. I have made new friends, and made the bonds between my existing friends so much stronger. Camp opened many doors for me, from overcoming fears to becoming a more confident and self-assured person. Camp helped each and every one of us to become a family. The teachers and camp staff were very welcoming and reassured us in every way possible, meaning that when the time came not one of us wanted to leave. The rich variety of activities made sure that everyone had something new to try and a new challenge to overcome. My personal favourite activity was kayaking because it was one of my first activities and was where I first saw different people's personalities start to come through - teachers and students alike! The first day seemed to fly by and all too soon it was time for bed. However, spending time in the tent turned out to be some of the best times. We shared lots of laughs and being woken up by singing teachers will always be a highlight! I will be forever thankful for this opportunity and would like to give a huge thank you to the camp staff, teachers, parents and everyone who made this trip possible. And last but not least, I would like to thank my fellow students for making this trip such an exciting and memorable experience. Although Year 7 camp is only just over, I can't wait for Year 9 camp and know that everyone else feels the same. "
