Year 13 PE Camp to Great Barrier Island 2015
By Quinn Barker
The Year 13 PE class went to Great Barrier Island as part of our course working towards Level 3 credits in leadership and outdoor education.
What a fantastic camp - six days of adventure and great opportunities!
Arriving by ferry at GBI, we were instantly taken aback by the scenery. It wasnt long before we were partaking in a range of activities including coastering, surf and sea kayaking, fishing, overnight camping and snorkeling (in crystal clear water).
The activities were challenging and the marine life was amazing. We saw a wide range of species including stingrays and an octopus. Some of us were also lucky enough to unexpectedly experience swimming with a dolphin. Eating fresh kina off the rocks topped it off!
Hilary Outdoors has fantastic staff/instructors with a passion for the outdoors, providing endless ways to explore this adventure paradise.
This camp offers a wide variety of challenges to endure, and I would encourage anyone to take up this opportunity.
