The students in years 4, 5 and 6 at Calen along with the students from Pindi Pindi State School, are invited to participate in a school camp to the Capricorn Caves near Rockhampton. The three day camp will commence on Monday 12th August 2019 and students will be travelling by bus and camping at the Eco Lodge at the Caves.
During the camp, students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities supervised by qualified staff from the Caves. Adventuring caving, climbing wall, fossil tour, initiative challenges, Cathedral tour, hosted campfire, as well as a visit to the Heritage Centre are some of the proposed activities.
The cost of the camp will be approximately $350. The final price will be calculated once numbers are confirmed. A deposit of $100 is due by Tuesday the 30th April. Please note, this deposit is non-refundable as the total cost of the bus is split between all students attending. The more students that attend camp, the lower the cost of the bus for each participant.
For your child to be eligible to attend camp, the Student Resource Scheme form needs to have been returned to school and payment of these fees either paid or arrangements in place.
Please fill in the form sent home if you wish for your child to attend the camp at Capricorn Caves. This form needs to be returned to school before the Easter break (Friday 5th April 2019) so that transport can be organised. By completing the form you acknowledge that payment of $100 will need to be made by the 30th April regardless if you should change your decision for your child to attend.
If you have any questions in regard to this camp, please email Mrs Donna Rankin at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the school on 49497333.
