Camps are back in TERM 1, 2022
Great news for us all and for all camp providers here is a guide from the Department of Education NSW on Covid Safe Guidelines for Schools;
Schools should use the following guidelines to plan these activities until detailed guidelines are available in mid-January.
Camps (and overnight excursions)
When organising camps, schools should:
plan a cohort-based approach (such as a Year 7 only camp)
confirm whether they will have sole use of any facilities or how the provider will avoid mixing groups outside the relevant school cohort
consider COVID-safety measures offered by camp providers, including staff vaccination mandates and hygiene supplies
prevent anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms from attending camp
confirm the responsibilities of the school, the provider and parents and carers in caring for anyone who develops symptoms while on camp (including transport and COVID-19 testing).
