The weekend's weather was the perfect setting for the 4th Annual POSTMEN School Camp Out. This year we expanded from the Junior School to include the ELC and Middle School and had a total of 160 attendees with children ranging from 3 to 14 years old.
We started the day with a brief about The Fathering Project and the POSTMEN, whilst the kids had a scavenger hunt then rolled into the traditional Dads vs Kids Capture the Flag Challenge. For the first time in four years, the dads emerged victorious (much to the kids disgust!).
After footy and frisbees on the Oval with Dad, it was time for our first ever Dodgeball Tournament, with 11 teams of various ages furiously vying for the title of Dodgeball Champions. Then time for a movie whilst the BBQs fired up to feed some hungry bellies. After settling down for the evening, the children ran around until probably a bit later than they should have, whilst the dads had a good chat together.
Before we knew it the sun (and kids) were up, and it was time to get the day underway. We rolled into breakfast as the coffee van pulled up, and a long line very quickly formed. Bacon and egg rolls, fresh fruit, and a range of cereals with a selection of juice boxes got devoured, before everyone pitched in to help tidy up and leave the Oval spic and span ready for the school week.
Thanks to the POSTMEN Committee for all the effort in putting on the event, and the amazing POSTMEN dads for joining us for an outstanding weekend.
