Hi, my name is Luke Williams and I am currently studying a double degree in Commerce and Information Systems at Deakin University. I have been an enthusiastic attendee of OCamp over the past 4 years, seeing the program as an opportunity to help students connect with others and make uni a much less daunting experience.
Unfortunately, I missed out on attending OCamp as a first year (major regrets), however I made up for the loss in my second year when I applied for a leadership role and never looked back!
Because of OCamp, I have made heaps of friends who make uni life so much more welcoming and desirable, rather than just attending classes and going home. OCamp is a fantastic intro to uni and really exposes what this new chapter of life has to offer, especially from the wisdom and guidance of the camp leaders.
Looking back on the years, I have developed so many amazing memories at OCamp, including jumping into messy mud puddles for points at my first camp.
I’ll never forget the raft we built at my second OCamp, flipping vertically and tipping everyone but myself and the other leader into the water. Everyone thought this was totally unacceptable so made the effort to swim back to our raft and lean on the side so we were tipped into the water too. It was hilarious!
From designing flags and bandanas, to getting my hair spray painted green and organising so many activities, my years at OCamp have truly been the best ever. Sign up for OCamp today to make life-long memories and never look back!
