From the Camp Director
Now that PAC X-5 has been going for three days things have started to click. Boronia and Grevillea had a great day yesterday with the onsite electives. The Boys overcame their initial fears and had a go. The instructors give their congratulations to the boys for their enthusiasm. Make sure that you are security aware at all times. If we all look out for each other and their belongings the Camp will be enjoyable for anyone. Make sure you are completing your devotions each morning. If you have any questions speak to your cabin officer or company Chaplain. Enjoy Sydney, enjoy Camp and have a great day! Warren Finnan Camp Director Please ensure that you are on time for all buses leaving and returning to camp, especially if you have to meet a train!
Horse Riding Heroes. Wow Horse riding elective is such a blast! Heaps of fun, and lots of photo opportunities with lots of horse's (and female attendants too!!) Just ask the Waratah boys! (All girls ages between 12 and 25!) If you haven't been to the computers at camp yet you don't now what you are missing. Campers from Waratah and Banksia doing the Computer Crazy elective spent a great day "shooting each other" in Call of Duty.

Late entries will be considered the following day.
Yesterday a group of boys went up to the Horse riding. Miraculously none of them ever got lost (not mentioning any names). The boys had a wonderful time of horse riding and then a 9 km hike back home. Lots of sore feet tonight
Mountain Bike Riding
Yesterday some boys also went Mountain Bike Riding. Some way there a boy was not well, but soon he was back on his feet. One boy said it was a 43 km ride, and a 9 km hike was nothing. Contributed by Joshua Suli (171, Waratah Co.)
Congrats to Marcus Barnes
After walking the distance in Discover Sydney on Wednesday he also completed 5km walk back from the horse riding activity with very painful feet.
G'day Guys, PACcer of the Day is going off like a cracker! Congrats to Sam as yesterday's PACcer of the day. What a beaut time we're having! Today's New Years Eve. What a great opportunity to think about what you want to do with your life in the new year. Take some time during the day to think about what it means to start something new. God luv ya' all.
