Year 3 Camp

June 28, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – June 29, 2018 @ 2:30 pm



28th – 29th June 2018


Dear Parents,

At Droxford Junior School we place the importance of the outdoor classroom very highly. After the success of previous year 3 camping on the school grounds, Droxford Junior School would like to offer this exciting experience again.  It will be an excellent opportunity for children to have a taster experience and provide a stepping stone for future residentials within the school.


A brief outline of events (weather dependent!)

28th June

1.30pm – Children put up tents until the end of day on the school field.

3.30pm – Children go home as normal – change and have their evening meal.

6.00pm – Children return at 6pm for a 6.30 start, in non-school uniform, with overnight bags and sleeping bags, organise kit in tents and follow a programme of evening activities lead by teachers on site.


29th June

8am – Breakfast in the school hall.

am – activities using area surrounding school including up on the hills overlooking the school and Meon River. Packed lunch provided by school kitchen.

pm – take down tents and go home 2.30pm. Parents must collect their child from school after the camp on Friday as they will have all their belongings to take home.




A high standard of behavior is expected from pupils throughout the camp. Children must respect instructions and discipline from Droxford staff and parent helpers.  Listening carefully is extremely important.  Should a compromising incident occur or trust be lost, it will be the group leader’s decision and right to expect parents to make arrangements for their child’s collection.

Food arrangements

We would like children to have eaten their evening meal at home before returning to school to start the camp at 6pm. They will be given a light snack later for supper and a hot or cold drink before going to bed.  In the morning they will be given a cooked breakfast from the school kitchens.  Staff will be on hand to support with breakfast arrangements, however, a couple of parent helpers would be greatly appreciated, in order to help the children and support in the kitchen.  Please let me know if you would be able to help.  The kitchen staff will make every child on the camp a packed lunch for Friday and we will provide other snacks and drinks.  Please can I ask that your child is not sent with any sweets and snacks as they will not need them.
