They all enjoyed a wide range of activities in upwards of 20 zones with the other groups on the Mozart Symphony sub-camp – one of ten such sub-camps.

Each day was split in to a morning session, an afternoon session, and the opportunity to participate in the evening entertainment area after dinner.

All attendees came home with multiple favourite activities, proving that they had all thrown themselves into all the activities on offer in the different zones.
