In Week 3, Year 7 students travelled to Fitzroy Falls for their first camp as Bushy Boys. The boys were randomly placed into ten tribes with students from several primary schools in each. Changing schools is a big step that can be challenging for any child, so camp is a great opportunity for the boys to come together and create new friendships and experiences.

By 6am, students were beginning to fill up the school hall quite quickly. A mix of nerves and excitement filled the room by both parents and students. By about 7am, we were all on the road and ready for the 2-hour drive ahead.

Once we arrived at Fitzroy Falls, the students gathered at the front of the camp in excitement, awaiting instructions from their new camp instructors. Students were greeted and placed into their tribes, where they then began their activities for the day. Each tribe had about 15 Year 7 boys, 2 senior mentors, a teacher and a camp instructor.
