Year 3 and 4 students from Cobram Anglican Grammar travelled to Alexandra Adventure Resort for a three-day outdoor adventure school camp.

Excited students boarded the bus on Monday last week ready to tackle the adventure-style camp activities, which included a high ropes course, a giant harness swing, a 300m flying fox over a lake, laser tag, canoeing and archery.

Year 3 and 4 teacher Ben Davis said the camp was intended to get students out of their comfort zones and pushing themselves on activities they had not attempted before.

‘‘It was great to see so many students have the opportunity to experience activities that are not readily available,’’ Mr Davis said.

‘‘We had quite a large number of students tackle the high ropes course and really push themselves mentally to complete it.’’

Mr Davis said he was proud of his students’ enthusiasm and can-do attitude, which allowed them to tackle the most challenging activities.

‘‘No doubt it will serve students well into the future,’’ he said.

The students were also treated to some quieter moments, including a night of toasting marshmallows under a campfire while gazing up at the stars.

Year 4 student Tahlia Muller described her experience as ‘‘the best camp I have ever been on’’ while her classmate Sienna Ross, who celebrated her birthday on camp, said she had the time of her life.

‘‘It was great to spend time with my friends doing some really exciting activities,’’ she said.
