From 10-13 April, 28 students spent the week in Adelaide as part of the Year 10/11 Camp Week. Staying at the Adelaide Central YHA on Waymouth Street, the group participated in a variety of activities in the fields of culture, the arts, and local history, including a gymnastics and roller skating session, a filmmaking workshop, and a visit to the Museum of South Australia.
We used public transport to get to different venues across Adelaide, including the Blackwood Recreation Centre, the old Adelaide Gaol, Belair National Park, and the Adelaide College of the Arts.
A highlight of the week was the Social Justice Day, where the group undertook an in-depth discussion about the subject of homelessness. We visited The Salvation Army, and learned about the unique challenges that are faced by those who are experiencing homelessness, and what we can do to help. Led by a team from Beyond Limits, students also had the challenging task of role-playing what it would be like to feel lost in an unknown city with few resources, and work together to figure out what steps they would take to get help.
The camp provided students with a chance to try new things, meet new people, and think about the world from another point of view.
