The final day to confirm your child's participation in the camp, by payment in full, is 24 June 2022.


A letter with details regarding camp and a cut off slip to be completed for attendance at camp and by those parents who are able to help out at camp, was sent home with your child the week commencing 9 May. Once camp parent helpers have been confirmed, a meeting will be held for these parents on Thursday 28 July at 7.30 pm. It is imperative that all parent helpers attend this meeting.
