Emily Campbell was chosen from the Diocesan School for Girls to represent the school at the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Camp run by Rotary. The Hobbiton Team in combination with Rotary designed and hosted the camp from Thursday 16 to Sunday 19 March at Thomas Baines Environmental Centre.

The camp, designed to foster initiative and good leadership, included representatives from schools all over the Eastern Cape.

The outdoor activities included canoeing, rafting, group dynamics and orienteering while the indoor activities were designed by a group of psychologists from Rhodes University on leadership and stress management. A potjiekos competition and volleyball tournament were also part of the highlights.

Emily writes, ‘Overall it was a lot of fun and I got to meet a lot of amazing people from all sorts of different places around the Eastern Cape’.
