Below are some photos of the Bronze expedition during Week 10 of last term, along with some student’s quotes about the camp.

“Overall, I really enjoyed the camp. It was a great experience where I met new people that I hadn’t talked to before, I was able to bond with these girls and have a shared experience through this camp”. Lucinda L, 8MH

“The Bronze Dukes camps were a fantastic experience for me to focus on my outdoor skills and capability to learn new things. On day 1 my group walked over 16-kilometers and had to encourage each other to continue and push through the very long walk”. Clementina C, 8SN

“In conclusion, although the weather wasn’t as nice and caused us many difficulties and couldn’t even sit around the campfire for group time the overall experience was great. I felt like I learned many things about what to prepare and got more fluent in reading a map. I liked the camp”. Annie W, 8SN
