Room Sunflower Camp Info 2018
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
This newsletter is to inform you that I have made arrangements for our 2018 class camp. Our theme this year is “growing together” so I have chosen to use Bethany Camp at Kaiteriteri in order to make the most of the wonderful natural environment on our doorstep.
The dates for our camp are Wednesday 14th, Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November. I know it is towards the end of the year but I have chosen these dates so we hopefully have wonderful weather to enjoy and it is halfway through Term 4 rather than at the end.
The outline of what we will be doing is as follows:
Wednesday: Get to camp and enjoy some of the activities available there such as the waterslide, orienteering, golf, adventure playground and games.
Thursday: Drive to Marahau, walk in the National Park to Anchorage Beach. We will get a sea shuttle back to Kaiteriteri, enjoy the playground and flying fox. Then back to camp for dinner followed by a night time glow worm walk.
Friday: Pack up camp, then go to Kaiteriteri to have a wonderful adventure of working together to paddle 2 giant wakas to Split Apple Rock Beach and back! We will then have lunch and some beach activities before returning to school by 3pm. I can’t wait! I’m so excited! I have no doubts this will be an experience for our children to remember forever.
The costs for this 3 day / 2-night adventure will be approx. $135.00. We can bring this cost down considerably by doing some fundraising. I am keen to meet with any parents who would be interested in being part of a team that works on this for the benefit of all the class. I would like to call a meeting next week, Wednesday 30th May, after school at 3pm to discuss this, please come along with your fabulous ideas.
Josie, in our school office is always happy to discuss payment plans with parents. You could pay a small amount weekly, fortnightly or monthly, whatever works for your family.
As always, I am available to discuss with you, any concerns or questions you may have.
Please contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message with the office for me to call you.
