Wye River Youngies Camp

Last weekend the Melbourne Youngies made the journey down the Great Ocean Road to Wye River for the 2013 break-up camp. The camp started on the Friday night with everyone pitching their tents right by the river, some managed to do this when it was still light… most when it was very dark. We woke the next morning to beautiful Victorian weather, everyone enjoyed lying in the sun, talking, reading and playing a bit of bocce, totem tennis and cricket. After enjoying a tasty lunch, some went for a float down Wye River to the beach, while others played on the jumping pillow until exhausted.

That night we continued along the Great Ocean Road past Kennet River to see the glow worms in the bush, then back to camp to talk by lamp light. On Sunday we were woken by Kookaburras at 6am but then most enjoyed a Sunday sleep in. We then packed up camp and migrated to a nearby house where we held a Communion Meeting, there we sang choruses, and enjoyed 4 short talks from the Youngies and listened to many testimonies. Thanks to all those who made the effort to come along and make it a memorable camp, driving from as far as Morwell and Adelaide to be a part of it!
