Dear Year 7 and Year 8 Parents,
The registration process for the Year 7 and 8 camps has now commenced. Both camps will take place in Week 9 of Term 1. The Year 7 Camp is held on Hindmarsh Island, running from Tuesday 29 March – Friday 1 April and the Year 8 Camp is held at Roonka Water Activity Centre on the Murray River, running from Monday 28 March to Friday 1 April. All our Middle School Camps are facilitated by Wilderness Escape Outdoor Adventures who are a leading Outdoor Education Company in South Australia.
Please click on the links below to view the parent letter for each camp with the details to register your child as well as program outlines and equipment details. We request that registration is completed by Friday 18 March to allow Wilderness Escape time to finalise the program.
All students will participate in a camp workshop during the Wednesday morning ‘Wellbeing’ program, and they will have ample opportunity to prepare for the camp. I ask you to please click on the link in the parent letter and download all the relevant information to discuss with your child, including the Base Menu, Menu Planner, Student Information Booklet, What To Bring List and Program.
We are continually monitoring and responding to the COVID-19 situation in South Australia and our school. We have worked with Wilderness Escape to ensure that each camp complies with current SA Health and AISSA guidelines and prioritises student safety, and will continue to adjust activities as needed in response to further COVID-19 updates. Please note students (and staff) should not attend camp if they are symptomatic or feeling mildly unwell.
If you have any questions regarding the structure, timings and organisation involved in preparing for camp please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions about the registration process please contact Wilderness Escape directly, contact details are on the parent letter.
