A muddy good time at Emu Gully Camp

Mud, slides, swings and tunnels. These are just some of the amazing experiences the Year 6 students from Bunker’s Hill were able to participate in at Emu Gully Camp.


Emu Gully was not the type of place to bring your best clothes.

Squishy mud through our toes, clothes and in our hair.  The mud was so thick that we needed lots of team work to conquer the long mud pits. 

The screams and laughter of our class was deafening, we were having so much fun! 

At night time we had more obstacles to face.  Giant green frogs and brown toads were carefully guarding our cabins and bathroom doors.  

Only the brave soldiers (Year 6 students and Miss Rummell) could get past them! 

Even the terrifying tunnels couldn’t beat this group of Year 6 leaders, with students facing their fears and completing the course.  

We couldn’t have done it without lots of encouragement from each other, and 100 percent effort from all of us.

Swimming in the dam was definitely a highlight. There were 2 diving boards that were different heights, a slide, and big swing that you hung onto, swinging you out onto the dam when you let go. 

The swing was a blast and definitely tested our courage. It was a wonder we didn’t sink, as we were so full from the mouth-watering food we ate whilst on camp!

Emu Gully was the most amazing camp we have ever been on.  Not only did we have lots of fun, we also learnt about leadership and teamwork. 

We are now ready to be the best school leaders we possibly can, for 2022.
