Our Year 9 camps take place during Term 4. Each House spends two nights and three days at our school camp at Waharau on the Firth of Thames. Usually, one of these nights is spent on an 'out camp' in tents and the other night is spent in dormatory style accomodation.


We expect all Year 9 students to attend camp as this meets the Ministry of Education requirement for Outdoor Education. The activities provided on camp offer each student an opportunity to challenge themselves, grow in confidence and develop new physical and social skills.



Parents will each receive detailed information and a medical/consent which will be sent home with your child closer to the time.


  • The letter will answer any questions you may have about camp and advise who to contact if there is anything you wish to follow up.  We would be grateful for the prompt return of the medical/consent form. 
  • Invoices will be emailed to parents/caregivers of Year 9 students which include the Year 9 camp fee.
