Weather and tides permitting, we’ll be enjoying various types of fishing over the week including; boat, land based (beach and point), barge fishing off the Pōnui cattle barge, long lining in the bay and kayak fishing. We’ll be running a number of optional fishing, sporting & life skills master classes led by members of the team, teaching various aspects of fishing and other life/sporting skills. You’ll have the chance as part of this to learn how to fillet and cook your own fish properly and we’ll even have a smoker on hand to use as well. We will have all the fishing gear we need for camp, but if you’d like to bring your own fishing rods and tackle with you, then feel free to do so as it’s always helpful to have a few spares.
We’ll also have the possibility of enjoying heaps more fun in between the fishing including; swimming, kayaking, barge jumping, paddle boarding and sports activities. We’ll be undertaking several team challenges including an overnight sleep-out survivor challenge, a life jacket bay swim challenge and eating great food (that you’ll be cooking for yourselves in groups on different days and will hopefully involve some of our catch of the day!)
We’ll be spending an hour or two each day reflecting on some of the big questions of life and faith. We're never going to have all the answers, but come prepared to think through some ideas as we figure some of this stuff out together through interactive talks and group discussion.
