It’s the camp of fun

Fun at the Lions camp. 148923

FOUR Ocean Grove youngsters enjoyed five days of fun and adventure at the Licola Wilderness Village this month.
Surfside Primary’s Lauchie enjoyed the giant swing, while Katelyn, from Ocean Grove Primary, said the flying fox was “fantastic”.
For fellow students Tabby (Surfside) and Arduin (Ocean Grove) the highlight was canoeing on the Macalister River.
Other activities included ‘the leap of faith’, archery, cooking, mini golf, swimming and the high ropes.
Licola Wilderness Village is run by the Lions Club and hosts 130 children between eight and 12 from around Geelong each January.
The camp’s 33 volunteers and eight outdoor activity leaders encourage teamwork and challenge the children to exceed their expectations.
The Victorian Lions Club purchased Licola more than 40 years ago, transforming the 15-cottage sawmill village into an outdoor adventure centre.
Ocean Grove-Barwon Heads Lions Club has supported the camp for years with student sponsorships and is now looking for future sponsors for local young people.
