Dear Parents / Guardians,

We are planning an exciting trip to Camp Muskoka Outdoor Education Leadership Centre for this year’s Grade 8 students from Monday, March 05, 2018 to Wednesday, March 07, 2018

The Camp Muskoka overnight experience offers students a great opportunity to learn and develop leadership skills that will benefit the entire school community. While at Camp Muskoka, students will be submerged in a beautiful, natural forest setting where they will have the opportunity to experience numerous hands-on, curriculum-linked educational and recreational activities. Camp Muskoka’s teaching staff specializes in leadership training and team building workshops, both of which will be integrated throughout the program.

One of the featured activities included in this excursion is Camp Muskoka’s Canopy Aerial Park. This 18 element high ropes challenge course takes students on an eco-adventure through the forest canopy of Camp Muskoka, culminating with the longest zip-line in Ontario. Challenge Course activities are designed to encourage leadership, communication skills and social development within a student group.

While this type of trip normally costs more than $450 per student, Camp Muskoka has offered a special promotion enabling us to experience an all-inclusive 3 Day, 2 Night Outdoor Education (meals, accommodations, bus, programs and taxes) for only $245 per student.

The staff of Camp Muskoka will be hosting a parent information night at Brownridge PS to inform parents of the details of the trip as well as answer any questions. Brochures will be provided to all that attend, in the meantime, for more information on Camp Muskoka please feel free to visit the Outdoor Education section of Camp Muskoka’s web site at http://www.campmuskoka.com.

Thank you for your valuable consideration. We look forward to seeing you and your student(s) at the information night tonight.
