Danbury Camp 2016

95 valiant CCA students led the Olympiad expedition to Danbury for the Ancient Greek adventure of a lifetime. They were armed with team posters from Apollo to Aphrodite, Hermes to Hercules! 

10 teams were bravely led by 6th Formers, working with Year 9 Deputy Leaders who had interviewed to be successful, to support the Year 7's in their groups in this epic extravaganza. 

High ropes were climbed, canoes rowed, obstacles over-come and bikes ridden with happy campers also enjoying CCA led activities and sessions like "The Invasion" to build a Trojan Horse, Achilles' Heel to discuss and improve issues that may stand in our way, and Artwork in the "Coloursium". 

Our league of students sung through the evening at our Campfire and wowed each other with their talents at the Final Show in the “Coloursium” on Thursday, before returning to CCA on Friday a strong and united community. 

Several Year 7s and 9s were heard to say that they were looking forward to hopefully returning in Year 9 or 6th Form, if successful at interview, to lead this great trip where age has no boundaries to friendship and the CCA wider community has strength in Olympic proportions.
