Jamie’s Story – Year 7 Transitions Camp

The 2011 Year 7 Transitions Camp to Golden Valley Lodge in Flinders, Victoria is, and will continue to be, one of my favourite memories of Gleneagles. I went to the camp barely knowing anyone but by the time we got home I knew a lot of people, many of whom had become my friends. All the activities were fun to do and be a part of. I conquered my fear of heights and free-falling on the giant swing and the Flying Fox, a zip line which runs down the side of a mountain. I had so much fun at the camp I asked the teachers if I could stay longer because I didn’t want to leave, but unfortunately, it was time to go. I now have a group of friends who I love and trust and know they will be my life-long friends. The beginning of my Gleneagles journey started with a good memory.
