Below is a comprehensive outline of the activities your child will participate in whilst on camp, some of which are identified as high risk:
  • Canoeing/Kayaking    Students will paddle  across Currimundi’s gorgeous waterways, progressing together whilst working as a team.  Students will be wearing Personal Flotation Devices (PFD). This activity is lead by a Currimundi Recreation Centre Canoeing Guide. 
 
  • Body Boarding    This activity will take place on the patrolled beach at Currimundi.  Like surfing, body boarding also has a strong surf awareness component. However, almost everyone can expect to enjoy successfully riding a board. 
  • Pool Games    We play a range of favourite and soon to be favourite, pool games. Using a variety of pool toys we play games including relays, treasure diving, and underwater hockey. The best part is at the end of the session when we turn up the music and PARTY!
 
  • Team Challenge    Together Everyone Achieves More! Team challenge is an assortment of team building activities, which give people the opportunity to draw on their strengths and weaknesses to work towards a common goal.
  • Alpine Team Rescue    Students  make their way around a modified low ropes course in small teams stimulating an alpine environment.  A scenario is set at the start where the participants are caught in an alpine environment and need to make their way to safety.  This is an excellent activity to achieve team building outcomes.  
  • Catapults    Students bring out their medieval side with catapults. Each group will learn the art of knot tying as well as some basic structural design principals. Once students have mastered these, their new skills are put to the test in an old-fashioned catapult off!
  • Fun Games (Night Activity)    Instructors lead students in fun games and activities after dinner which include continuing the Year 5  Dodgeball Championships.
 
Parents/Guardians are required to complete medical and permission forms online by Wednesday 19 September. These forms include all medical and dietary requirements needed for camp as well as swimming abilities.  Any students with a medical condition that may impact their safety when in the surf or swimming pool will require a clearance from a medical practitioner to participate in water related activities.  

 

 
 
 
Medication on camp:

 
•    If your child requires medication whilst on camp please bring this to the office before Friday 19 October. All medication needs to be in the original packaging with prescription details, to ensure correct dosage and timings.

No medication can be accepted the Monday morning of camp due to time restraints with paperwork – if this poses a problem please contact Anne Slattery before Wednesday 17 October.
