The head student camp was an amazing experience. The rock climbing wall was very hard but it taught me to push myself to the limits. The pancake challenge was very tasty and if i'm ever lost in the bush, I know what i'm cooking! Overall the camp taught a lot more about leadership. - Tom
Put your right hand out and grasp a firm grip shake fluently for about 1-2 seconds then let go. How to do a successful handshake is just one of the useful tips we learnt at camp. Along with rock climbing and making pancakes it was all challenging and exciting but fun. Thanks to Omokoroa Number 1 School for hosting the leadership camp. - Leo
The lead student camp was a amazing experience to learn how to be a leader. The great pancake challenge was when we get a map and go all round camp and find ingredients to make pancakes. We learnt how to be in a team. The rock climbing wall was tall and very challenging. If we weren't confident we learnt you have to fake it till you make it. Overall we learnt if were not happy about something you have to move on and be a leader. At the end of the camp we shared ideas to bring back to our schools. We thought we would have a golf fundraiser. - Grace
I had so much fun at the lead student camp because as well as being fun I learnt so much about how to be a better leader. My favorite activity was the rock wall because it was challenging, yet I still made it to the top. I also really enjoyed the great pancake challenge because I had others that could help me. Although we ruined all of our pancakes we still had heaps of fun and that's really important when you are a leader. We also learnt that everything isn’t going to go your way and that's ok, you just have to move on. Overall it was a great trip, I had so much fun and learnt so much and I know now I’m more confident being a leader. - Rose
