The day that all the Grade 6 learners had been waiting for had finally arrived. There had been much excitement and buzz around the topic for weeks. Now the buses and trailers were packed and it was time to wave goodbye to the parents and get the snacks out, ready for the trip ahead.
130 learners were divided into teams and the activities began right away with a tent building contest – a foreign concept to some. They would soon learn that although the days were warm, the nights were very cold especially outside the comfort of those tents.
The three days at Addo were packed with activities – from survival games, obstacle courses, canoeing to even the Big Swing and the highly anticipated Zipline.
After a busy three days, it was time to say goodbye to camp. Most came home having conquered their fear of heights. All came home tired and in need of their warm beds.
It was enjoyed by all and we are sure that the stories about Addo will be continue to be told for a long time to come.
