               Thin Cover Revisioning School Camp

This PLD supports teachers and schools to develop localised, place responsive and student-centred school camp programmes.

It offers guidance and suggested teaching and learning approaches for schools wishing to provide quality camp learning experiences for their students.

The PLD begins with a 1-day workshop and continues with 6-9 months of continued support, which will assist teachers in implementing changes to practice. The recently released Revisioning School Camps, A teaching and Learning Resource is used to underpin and guide this PLD.
