Yr 8 Camp Night

Yr 8 Camp Night

Great Marlow School has been offering Year 8 students the opportunity to participate in the Year 8 Camp Night for the past two years. Hugely successful, this is an event that has been thoroughly enjoyed by all those who sign up. GMS staff are offering all current Year 8 students the chance to take part in the 2018 camp. The students, accompanied by staff, will be camping overnight at Inspired Adventure Centre, Westhorpe Farm in Little Marlow. This is a great opportunity for children to enjoy some time with friends, while taking part in fun activities in the freedom of the great outdoors.

Students participating in the camp night need to be dropped off at Marlow Rugby Club car park at 5pm on Friday 8th June. They will be fully supervised during their walk along the river to the centre. After putting up their tents for the night, they will have pizza. The following morning cereal is provided for breakfast. Parents and carers will need to pick their son or daughter up at 9 am on Saturday 9th June at Marlow Rugby Club.

Many activities have been organised including team challenges, games and canoeing on the lake. It is imperative, therefore, that students wear appropriate footwear for the event. They will also need a rucksack packed with warm clothes for the evening, waterproofs, night clothes and toiletries. Tents and rollmats are provided, but students are required to supply their own sleeping bag.

The cost is £25, which includes food and drink. This is a fantastic chance for the Year 8 students to be involved in an adventurous camping activity and is a good preparation for those who may be considering signing up for their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award with GMS next year.

If you would like your son/daughter to take part in the camp night, please pay using Parentpay by Friday 18th May and complete the attached medical/consent form and return to Miss Murray in the PE Office. Should your son or  daughter have any allergies or medical condition, please ensure they bring the correct medication with them on the day.
Any further queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact, Miss H Murray at: hmurray@gms.bucks.sch.uk
