Green Super Camp Bali… Jai Shares His Experience!

July 23rd, 2012

Jai and Kaitlin also attended the Green Super Camp Bali, although their experiences were a little different to Flynn’s as they were with teenagers from 14 to 17 years old and their learning and activities were different. They also had life changing experiences and returned to Australia with plenty of stories to share and noticeable positive changes. Here is Jai’s account in his own words….

 

Dance & drama!

The Green Super Camp was a once in a lifetime opportunity! I reckon I learnt more in the one week I was there than I have all of high school! It’s hard to explain what we learnt, but it involved quantum strategies, learning how to trust, have integrity, be balanced, and be self motivated… We also learnt some easy ways to increase our grades!

    The way we were taught these things were also very unique… there were so many skits and stories and we were involved in any way possible! Learning became fun and we found it easier to remember things.
    Everybody there was so friendly and strong friendships were formed quickly.

Although the kids on the camp were from all around the world, we all got on really well and learnt a lot about each other!

    The Green Super Camp Bali was very different to any other camp I have been on… Every morning, to be able to have breakfast, we had to stand up as a team and yell out this chant:…

“HUNGRY HUNGRY
    * clapclap *
    VERY VERY
    * clapclap *
    HUNGRY VERY
    * clapclap*
    VERY HUNGRY
    * clapclap*
    TI CALACKA PI A PI A
    TI CALACKA PI A PI A
    TI CALACKA PI A PI A
    MAKAN!”

    At first we all thought this was really weird and immature and none of us were really comfortable chanting it, but after a few days, nobody cared about how they looked (another thing we learnt) and we all got right into it!

My favourite part of the camp was interacting with the people there and mucking around with new-found mates!
    And if I had to say my least favourite part of the camp, it would be the fact that we sat a lot and our bums were sore by the end on the camp but that was minor compared to how much fun we had.
    Overall this camp was an amazing experience and I would happily go back any day!
    I would recommend this camp to anyone who is experiencing problems in their life, or would just like to try something new!

In our next blog we hope to visit Kaitlin’s account of the Green Super Camp Bali. She hasn’t put pen to paper yet, so possibly we will take a look at something else until she gets round to it. It will be interesting to see if the camp lived up to her expectations!

    That was a great account of what appears to be a fantastic experience!

    Were the foreign words of the chant Indonesian?

      Hi Linda,
      Jai had an awesome time and yes, the foreign words were Indonesian. Whe the kids lived on Cocos Islands, they also learnt Indonesian, so if you ever need a guide when touring Bali, Jai’s your man!

    Hi Jai
    Really enjoyed reading about your experiences in Bali and extremely pleased you gained so much from the experience. Have you maintained contact with any of the people you met at the camp? Have you taught the rest of the family the breakfast chant?

    Love

      Hi Mum and Dad,

      Jai has been in contact with many of the kids he met – that’s the beauty of technology these days!
      We have heard all of the chants – most of the kids have had their breakfast before Jai rolls out of bed, so not the same effect chanting on your own!!!:)

      But I have been teaching one of the chants to the school kids during the Clubs sessions. That coupled with drums sounds awesome!

      Next time we see you, we’ll have to give you a give you an impromptu concert!

      Cath
