Looking for school camp ideas and inspiration? It can be a challenge for teachers and school camp coordinators to come up with an itinerary that’s both fun for students and achieves curriculum objectives. As well as making plans and running the show, you have to deal with managing parents’ expectations, handling student insecurities and making sure the bus is there on time. It’s a tough gig! That’s why we use our monthly blog to provide teachers and camp coordinators with ideas, tips and solutions to make running a school camp just a little bit easier.

Our daughter stayed this week with her school and just LOVED everything!!!!!

T. Luxford

I recently had the pleasure to attend the Coffs Adventure Centre with my school for a few days.  I came as an assistant but personally had the most rewarding few days.  I tried things I never would have, stepped out of my comfort zone and achieved things I didn’t think were possible.  By doing this it encouraged the children to push themselves that little bit further and I got the privilege to witness the children I didn’t think would involve themselves in activities just shine. To see them so happy and working as a team was also very rewarding.  The staff were all so fantastic and enthusiastic which also made our stay that much more enjoyable.  Thank you for the experience.
