A fortnight ago we were blessed to once again enjoy our annual Catholic Home Education camp.
This year we were thrilled to have a large, enthusiastic choir for our annual Confirmation/First Holy Communion Mass.
Our two eldest are in the centre, in the two back rows.
After the Mass (in which two of ours received Sacraments) we celebrated with cake and party.
Each day we enjoyed different activities, this year we visited a local rock pool.
It was such a beautiful, sunny day.
The children were fascinated by the marine life.
Little ones took the opportunity to cool off in the rock pools.
Our days were centred around our Faith, including daily Mass
and daily catechetical talks with our camp chaplain, Fr Rizzo.
We even managed to squeeze in a mother’s talk one afternoon (the Dad’s had a get together one night)
whilst our capable teens entertained the younger children
and the little ones.
Our nights were full of fun activities including quizes and dancing. Dancing was a new feature this year, organised by our teens and was a very popular hit.
Our last day we enjoyed our annual carnival
With lots of enthusiasm and team spirit.
We finalised the camp with concert night,
featuring a variety of acts, including singing
and skits. Fr Rizzo and Einstein; of course Father, a strong patriot is always quick to tote his flag.
There was lots of time for friendship, and three Australian representatives from 4real were quick to snap a shot:) (Leanne, Linda and myself)
Another great year, hard to believe our 11th!
