Last Chance to register for homeschool camp!

Last Chance to register for homeschool camp!
From the organisers of the camp:

The homeschool family camp at Lake Karapiro is in less than 2 weeks and I only have a couple of spaces left, so if there are any last minute registrations please contact me ASAP.

For those who are already registered feel free to pass this on via your homeschool contacts.

Also if are already registered, but have NOT paid your fees by this Friday, November 6th I will remove you from the camp list and offer your space to someone else.

Below is a summary of all the information I have sent out to the families who have signed up for the camp so far….

The camp runs from Tuesday 17 November to Friday 20 November at Lake Karapiro Out Door Pursuits Centre and Camp. Each family will pay for their own accommodation plus the cost of activities. Payment is made by way of bank deposit into a nominated bank account. I will give these details to you upon confirmation of your place.

The camp itinerary is as follows…

Day 1 – Tuesday 17 November

1pm – 3pm Check in and set up

3pm – 4:30: Shared afternoon tea, Meet and Greet.

4pm – 6:30pm Free time and evening meals (Each family responsible for own meal)
6:30 – 9:00pm – Evening games/entertainment/social time etc….
9pm – 10pm Family time or quiet evening activities

Day 2 – Wednesday 18 November:

9am – 4pm: (Children will be split into age based activity groups and participate in 3 of the following activities.)

Team Building

High Ropes

Raft building

Orienteering

Archery

Please note there are limited spaces in the groups due to restrictions on group sizes as part of the camps policy so places will be given on a first come first served basis.

4pm – 6:30pm Free time and evening meals (Each family responsible for their own meal)
6:30 – 9:00pm – Evening games/entertainment/social time etc….
9pm – 10pm Family time or quiet evening activities

Day 3 Thursday 19 November – Optional Activities at extra cost

9am – 4pm: (Those interested in participating in the following activities will be divided into workable groups and spend time with an instructor before having a go themselves.)

Sailing $20.25 p/p or Kayaking $22.50 per kayak

5:00 – 7:00 Group BBQ/Shared meal
7:00 – 9:00pm – Evening games/entertainment/social time etc….

9pm – 10pm Family time or quiet evening activities in own quarters

Friday 20 November
10am: Check Out
10am – 5pm: Waikato Homeschoolers Talent Quest in Cambridge for those interested in attending.

At this point there are only the powered and non powered camp site accommodation options left. Tenters will need to provide their own tent, cooking utensils, sleeping gear and food/drink. There is an ablution block and a camp kitchen with fridges and stoves for campers to use or they can provide their own cooking equipment. (eg:gas cooker/BBQ) Non powered tent site prices are $12 per AD and $9 per chd 2-12 years (PER NIGHT).

There is also the option of a powered camp site the cost of which is $14 per adult and $9 per child per night.

For all types of accommodation children are aged 2 – 12 years with under 2’s being free of charge. Everyone over the age of 12 is charged at the adult rate.

Each family will be responsible for their own meals other than the shared BBQ on the last night and the shared afternoon tea on the afternoon of arrival. (Volunteers will be required to be the BBQ cooks for this night.) Some families may prefer to share food and meal preparations at other times too, but that is up to each individual family.

As far as the evenings go I am leaving that in everyone elses capable hands to see what you can come up with but perhaps some group games/competitions like capture the flag or spot light tag. I am sure the kids can come up with some ideas between now and November. I know some families may prefer earlier nights and quieter evenings but I will leave that up to each individual family so long as the camp rule of quiet after 10pm is adhered to.

I think that is everything but if you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

As mentioned above there are only a very few spaces availabe and not in every age group so I will need to know the ages of your children before I can confirm a place in the camp for you, should you decide you want to join us. The camp is in less than 2 weeks so I will need to hear from you within the next day or two if you want to join us.

Blessings
