All School Camp Programs will have the students engage in various adventure based learning activities where they will be outside and could get dirty. We recommend that they don’t come away on camp programs in new or expensive clothing; old comfortable clothes are preferable.
If you require medications, please organise a Webster pack to use over the camp period. You will need to make yourself known to Daniel upon arrival and pass on the Webster pack for safekeeping.
