What to Expect at Camp

We are leaving for camp early tomorrow morning! The Upper School girls and all grade 7 & 8 students will be going to Camp White Pines in Haliburton and the Upper School boys will be heading to Camp Onondaga in Minden. The camps are about 4 hours north of Ridley.

Every year students attend camp at the beginning of the school year, it’s a great way to bond with housemates and classmates.  The students sleep in cabins, canoe, do high ropes courses and first aid training – not to mention singing around camp fires and much much more!

If you are a little nervous about camp – check the video out from last year, hopefully it will put your mind at ease – it’s a great experience!!:

Also, here is a handy list of things to bring to camp:

Socks and underwear for each day
2 pairs of pants
2 pairs of shorts (weather permitting)
2-3 t-shirts
1-2 long-sleeved shirt
1 pair of running shoes/hiking boots
