'Our' Camp Orange Experience - Tyler and Toby (Junior Jackers)


AJAX Junior Football Club U11 Comets member, Tyler 'Bulldozer' Southwick,
decided that he wanted to audition for Camp Orange for 2012 as he had just turned 10. He asked his good friend Toby Lipton (also in the U11 Comets)

to be his partner. They asked Tyler's dad, David to film them for the audition tape and really thought that that was the last they were going to hear about it.

Then on the 17th March, Tyler and Toby received the exciting phone call they
had been hoping for.. and their 'Camp Orange' Journey began as the Yellow
Team - The Bulldozers.

Tyler and Toby were selected from over 5000 audition tapes sent in from Australia and New Zealand.

With 2 Boys Teams and 2 Girls Teams selected, Tyler and Toby were the youngest by far - but it didn't faze them.

They flew up to Sydney and spent 4 amazing days eating 'disgusting stuff', getting 'slimed', muddy and much more.

Tyler said that even though they did not win, they made such AMAZING friends, met many celebrities and had the 'time of their lives'

He congratulated the winners and speaks to all the contestants daily on Skype.
