Morning everyone, this is Brittany from @camp_kulin taking over wheatbelt local for the day to show you all a day in the life of a camp counsellor! I have been volunteering with Camp Kulin since 2013 and this is my fourth camp for the summer. This is our last camp for the summer session and the camp has been sponsored by the CWA state conference! Enjoy!
1:00- Before lunch our campers participated in a challenge to make the tallest and strongest tower that is capable of holding a raw egg on top. We do numerous challenges like this, all requiring campers to use skills such as teamwork, communication, trust and persistance to name a few. It's now time for some quiet time after lunch to play board games and relax.
8:15- After the catwalk and question round heres the five finalists of the Miss Camp Kulin pageant with the winner being Will in the middle! Campers are now off to bed and counsellors will then prepare for tomorrows surprise themed morning! I'm lucky enough to have this insta takeover for tomorrow morning, so until then, goodnight everyone! #campkulin #kulin
7:00- This morning we woke up the campers in our Aussie themed outfits! We've got the likes of Dame Edna, Kath and Warrack Capper here this morning! Last night the counsellors were up late decorating the common area with aussie decorations. After breakfast we will do aussie themed activities before attending a morning tea at the local CWA! #kulin #campkulin #cwa
10:30 – this morning our campers were lucky enough to attend a morning tea at the Kulin CWA with a number of members from the head office, Kulin, Lake Varley and Hyden. The lovely members of CWA's across the state rallied together to raise $10,000 to pay for all of our campers to attent this camp. Many of our campers are unable to afford to pay for camp themselves so it is with the kind donations of many groups and individuals that our programs can run. We are currently fundraising for a camp for children affected by the Yarloop and Waroona bushfires. We require $12,000 to run this camp which will benefit children who have lost so much. Any donation is greatly appreciated, here's the link https://www.gofundme.com/campkulin Hope you guys have enjoyed my instagram takeover, if you want to see more please like our facebook page! Thanks everyone!
