The Cathedral College’s annual Sony Camp, brought the biggest smiles to little kids and big kids alike. About 29 Year 10, 11 and 12 students teamed up with 12 primary school students with the simple aim of having fun together.
Camp coordinator Miss Jacinta Taske said the camp is to spread the joy and happiness of Christmas through creating a wonderful holiday experience for young people.
“The primary school campers experience everyday challenges. This camp offers a respite for families and a fun time for the children,” she said.
Indoor craft, games and activities broke the ice before Ten Pin Bowling, Laser Tag and swimming formed new friendships.
“One of the highlights was our trip to Cool Waters. The kids just loved it. The pouring rain did nothing to dampen our spirits,” she said.
Jacinta said there was an overwhelming response from older students to be companions for the campers.
“It gives our students the opportunity to care for others and to see the positive impact they can make by giving of themselves and stepping outside their comfort zone,” she said.
The College has been offering Sony Camp for over ten years creating many, many happy memories for both campers and companions.
“TCC loves Sony Camp as it really is a chance to enjoy the best things in life. Bringing joy to others is incredibly rewarding for our volunteer students and staff,”
“We’re not sure who had the most fun, but the smiling faces tell the story of time well spent. We’re looking forward to next year already!” she said.
