How do you measure success at a Kids Camp?
The Vinnies Kids Camp for 2015 was held at Coolum Beach over the weekend of July 10th-12th.
On Friday, all of the campers arrived in time for lunch. The rain didn’t hold out for the first afternoon but nothing could dampen the spirits of the 80+ excited campers (44 children attended). Once the rain lifted, a game of Gold Rush set the kids into a frenzy. (See right for photo of kids hunting for gold!)
Saturday was a day of blue skies and filled with fun activities. These included low ropes, treasure hunts, arts & crafts, field activities and planning for the famous talent show. All teams prepared a performance to show that evening. There were many laughs and bright colours, loud music and some outstanding solos. Safe to say, the campers were pretty tired when it came time to go to bed.
Sunday morning it was time to pack up the rooms. Another game of Gold Rush was a must since it was so popular on Friday. The rest of the morning was spent playing cricket, soccer, footy and Red Rover.
When it came time to leave, most campers wanted to stay. Everyone said goodbye and another successful Kids Camp was over.
Some of the comments made included; “This was the best part of my holiday”, “I have something to talk about at school tomorrow now”, “I never want to leave”, “I’m coming back next year”.
A massive ‘THANK YOU’ to all of the volunteers who made the weekend a huge success. This simply would not have been possible without you!
