Bonamanzi River Camp – MYP1 2019
Bonamanzi Adventures played host to the MYP1 classes last week for their Week Without Walls. We were fortunate to have mostly excellent weather for the week and we made the most of it on the sprawling lawns. The MYP 1 students were kept busy right from their arrival. The facilitators had a wide range of exciting educational activities lined up Our students built a water filtration system for purifying water and put it to practical use , went river rafting, and completed a wide range of collaborative and team-building exercises all of which were designed to be fun and challenging. The students played rugby, skim ball, and enjoyed a night hike under the beautiful African sky. We made flags, learned about local fauna and flora and even tried our hand at carp fishing.
Evenings were kept busy with potjie cooking competitions, talent shows, and night hikes.
The level of involvement and enthusiasm from all the students was outstanding, and we left the camps having strengthened our bonds as well as making new friends.
