Girls step out of comfort zone for camp - 11 April 2014

Six Year 11 students were recently put through their paces at the Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN) leadership camp at Edmund Park, Laidley.

The camp, held from 28-30 March, brought together 14- 17 year old students from all over South-East Queensland, and involved plenary sessions, workshops, sport and entertainment activities.

The Lourdes Hill participants, Kara Tomkinson, Madelyn Jones, Tessa Onraet, Georgia Beggs, Francesca Thompson and Nadja Van Schie found the camp to be a challenging few days.

Kara said that the RYPEN camp was an amazing and slightly nerve-racking experience.

“(The camp) challenged everyone involved to step up to personal challenges and step outside their comfort zone,” she said.

“Leadership skills such as trust, communication, team work and perseverance were all developed in a series of different group activities.

“At the start of the camp few students knew each other; however by the end, so many had formed long lasting friendships.  

“I am so grateful to be given the opportunity to attend RYPEN and encourage others to take this amazing opportunity.”
