Junior squad camp Dun and dusted

Around 20 juniors and a dozen parents enjoyed our first junior squad camp for 2022 in Armidale earlier this month.
The camp took place immediately after the State League weekend and was an excellent lead-in to the national Easter carnival in Queensland the following weekend.
Sisters Steph and Jess Dun were the first camp attendees we have had from our newest club in Port Macquarie.
"It was super fun and I got along with everyone I met really well right from the start," said Steph.
"I learnt lots of new skills and developed existing ones. I think the most worthwhile thing I learnt more about was how to effectively use contour lines for navigation."
Jess told her dad Andrew it was "the best camp that she had ever been on (not just the best orienteering camp, but the best camp of any kind)."
"She mentioned that she has a much better idea of how to navigate now and it seems crazy that she learnt so much in less than a week."
A big thanks once again to junior squad manager Helen O'Callaghan and her coaches, plus all the parents who helped.
Stay tuned for details of the next junior squad camp, most likely in the July school holidays.
