Al Siraat has camp programs for Early Years students in Years 3 and 4 as well as in Middle School (Years 5 to 9). Each year we look for camps to offer a combination of adventure based activities and curriculum enriching activities.
We separate the boys and girls from Year 5, offering a separate Middle Years Camp for our boys and girls. The camp dates vary depending on appropriate facilities being available. Camps costs are kept to a minimum and are included as part of the Composite Levy of the College fees.
During camp, we provide an opportunity for religious reflection and all prayers are conducted. All food is halal and great care is taken to ensure appropriate separation on genders if we are required to share a camp venue with another school. As in the previous year, our 2018 camps are going to be out for three days and two nights.
The children love the camping program with an opportunity to build positive relationships with each other and the staff. The adventure activities are offered as a challenge by choice, with children engaging at their level while being challenged to push themselves out of their comfort zone. Many children (and staff) overcome fears and returned enriched for the opportunity to try something new.
