Year 3 Camp Reminders

Not long to wait now until we head off on the bus to Lake Dewar!

We are all so very excited about the many fun activities we will enjoy and the great times we will have with each other. The weather is so unpredictable at the moment, so we need to be prepared for all types of weather.

Please read the clothing list carefully, as your child will need to be able to carry their own bag and organise their own belongings as part of encouraging independence. Also, a friendly reminder to pack some gumboots, a waterproof coat and bring along some plastic bags for wet and dirty clothing.

Below is the link for Lake Dewar, if you would like to have a look at the Camp facilities.
