Watermelons, egg catching, pre-dawn wake ups and grueling training sessions. 

Collingwood's AFL Women's pre-season camp was nothing if not unique. 

With the full squad assembled in the Latrobe Valley, the three-day trip provided not only bonding opportunities, but a chance to fine-tune skill and fitness levels before the grind of the season begins.

Just what took place on the camp? Collingwood Media photographer Luke Henry was on hand to snap some of the best moments.
