Summer Blast 24' Teen Camp Recap

What an incredible week with a fantastic group of young people at Summer Blast 2024! Witnessing their growth as they navigate life's corners much like the dirt bike track has been truly inspiring. We had a blast with 3 days of riding and an epic Encounter X-games day at the lake. Over the course of camp, our facilitators brought some thought-provoking messages based on the life of Paul (Saul) and the valuable lessons we can learn from his walk with God. Our awesome Camp Coordinator, Kyan, proposed the challenging question of, "What direction are you headed?" This question remained the basis of our learnings which guided the campers to reevaluate their values and think about how the choices they make affect the trajectory of where their lives are headed. 

“I enjoyed the whole camp - it was amazing. All the opportunities and trying new things. The environment was great and I liked meeting new people and making new friends.” - Male camper

"Camp has made me more confident in my self worth and abilities." - Female Camper

"I will always remember how encouraging everyone was. Encounter has really helped me push through my fears and make me more confident with scary things because I now know I can do it!" - Female Camper

Huge thanks to Capenwray Adventure Lodge for hosting us, and a shout out to the Mackenzies and Tokoroa Club for grooming their tracks to perfection for our riders. A special mention to our incredible camp cooks, Royce, Natasja, Maree, and Taliya, for serving up delicious meals from food items generously donated by The Hub Te Puke. Gratitude also goes out to all our dedicated volunteers and supporters – your contributions make this camp possible, and we couldn't be more thankful. Exciting times ahead as we look forward to our next adventure at Winter Windout from July 10-14!
