It is weeks like this one that remind me (and the other Bush Ranger Instructors) why we volunteer our time for the Bush Ranger Program. The cadets were awesome, my fellow instructors were fantastic, our volunteers (Yvonne and Keira) were brilliant and together we all had an incredible few days to wrap up what has been a great year for the Bush Ranger cadets.
There was so much going on this camp including: Having a go at archery, searching around Ern Halliday for orienteering, finding the lost pilot, the flying fox, abseiling, the big swing, climbing crates, making paracord bracelets, swimming, visiting AQWA and Uno, lots and lots of Uno.
For many of us these activities presented different challenges and obstacles to overcome. All of the instructors are incredibly proud of how well the cadets worked together and supported each other to take on the challenges that they faced. I wish that the parents, guardians, family and friends of the cadets were able to have witnessed just how amazing each of them were. Though I am a little surprised just how stressful making paracord bracelets was for many of the cadets. Hopefully they all brought theirs home and will show you what they accomplished.
A massive thank you to the instructors, volunteers and students for all the hard work they put in to make this such a fun and rewarding experience. Camps like these couldn’t happen it without all of their efforts. Thank you also to the families of the cadets for all of your support and for trusting us with your children.
