Camp White Pine
On Monday morning, the 12th of September, approximately 150 of our Grade 10 students and 100 of our senior student leaders will depart for our annual leadership trip to Camp White Pine. The Senior Leaders are expected at the school by 6:15 a.m. for a 6:45 a.m. departure and our Grade 10 students are expected at the school by 9:15 a.m. for a 9:45 a.m. departure. Please ensure that your child is on time so that they do not miss the bus. Students who miss the bus will have to find their own way to camp.
The days will be warm, the nights will be cold and rain is always a possibility so please pack clothes for all of these conditions. A warm sleeping bag or warm blankets are also essential.
Each Grade 10 Camper has been assigned to a colour team and we encourage them to bring clothing and accessories in that colour. As well, there are two theme nights, One Pyjama Jam and one Western night so we also encourage fun costumes for those evenings.
Students will return on Friday, September 16th between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m.The staff and students are looking forward to a great week of ECI spirit.
For a complete list of things to bring, please see page 5 of the Camp White Pine Booklet.
