Dear Kyle, Scott and Team
This is just an email to say THANK YOU so much for the incredible camp! I have been told it was the “best camp of their lives” and if they had to rate it, it would be an 11/10. I have not stopped hearing stories about all the sergeants and their activities (even though I was there). The activities were so imaginative and original.
You can be very proud of the quality of your camps. We will definitely be using your company again for our 2018 camp!

Boot Camp Leadership Camp: (2016)
There is nothing more amazing than stargazing during a pitch black night and listening to the birds as they wake you up to the sunrise. Being in the middle of a large, yet well-kept farm, was something many of the children were not used to, but it set the scene for a powerful and meaningful week in their lives.
Camp was an incredibly enriching experience for all, the children were able to experience a sense of community and belonging through team building exercises and as a result the friendships they made were invaluable. The camp was not only fun, but also many life lessons were learnt in and through the various planned activities.
The activities were varied, interesting and relevant to the children. I would say some of the highlights were the target shooting, obstacle courses, river swimming and night-time stalk the lantern games.
The camp facilitators were dynamic, energetic and they bonded incredibly well with the children – many of whom they knew by name within a day.
As a staff we were very impressed with the meals and the level of responsibility the Boot Camp team and facilitators showed throughout the camp. The discipline was good and the rapport the facilitators built with the children was exceptional.
All in all the children had a blast, made memories, kept safe, built friendships and spend their time well.
Thanks again to the facilitators, parents and staff who made it all happen and thank you to all the children for just having fun and making for a great camp.

Dear Scott, Kyle, Dillon, Humphrey and Vega,
Thank you all for the wonderful camp last week. It was a pleasure working with you in the lead up to the camp, and the camp itself was great.
We appreciate the professional way you planned and conducted the camp, and the way you interacted with the children. They enjoyed the program and benefitted from the carefully planned activities.
A big thank you goes to Leah for the delicious food that she cooked. We all really appreciated that.
We have asked the children for their feedback from their perspective regarding the camp. There were some amazing positives with very few negatives.
The only real negative was the ‘pink’ juice which they didn’t enjoy.
On the whole the children were happy, had many stories to tell and absolutely enjoyed themselves. As teachers we were very impressed as to how well the camp was managed and the children supervised. The number and types of activities certainly made for a busy time and introduced children to hopefully life changing experiences.
It is with pleasure that Somerset College would like to confirm their booking for the next Grade 5 camp for 2017. Please advise whether this is possible.

I hope you had a restful weekend! Thank you so much to you and your sergeants for such an amazing camp last week. The grade 5s are still on a high and the ones who were anxious about being away for the first time have come back with so much self-confidence. The structured days and the team leaders’ rapport with the kids made for such a fun and easy camp. We also loved the reflective questioning at the end of the activities, this made their experiences very authentic.
We would love to join you again next year, could we book for Wed 15 – Fri 17 Feb 2017?
Have a good week!

We had an awesome time and I was very grateful for the programme you set up for the girls, and for the organisation of the food and facilities. Your instructors were great – helpful and friendly, maintaining just the right atmosphere. In fact, the girls thought you could have been tougher on them! I know that I felt a lot more relaxed this year because I knew what to expect, but you also made it easy on us by doing everything, so thanks for this! I would definitely like to come again next year!
