Year 9 students embarked on their biggest challenge of the Rite Journey Program with the highly anticipated five night Camp with a 24 hour solo night in the Adelaide Hills. Held during the last week of Term 3, the camp saw our students overcome personal challenges, move beyond their comfort zones, and ultimately develop their characters as they journey into adulthood. They hiked with rucksacks full of their own gear through the Adelaide Hills and Heysen Trail, rode Mountain bikes through rough terrain and completed a high ropes course. One highlight of the camp was the solo night where students set up their own shelters, experienced nature, spent time with themselves and God. It was an invaluable chance to reflect on their journey and achievements as they move into adulthood.
The Rite Journey camp is a unique educational experience that aims to support the development of self-aware, responsible and resilient adults. The program is designed to assist in transforming students from dependency to responsibility and involves the students in activities that challenge their thinking.
We are so proud of all our students and the entire Rite Journey staff team! Congratulations on this awesome achievement!
