Revisioning School Camps: Networks of Expertise PLD


               Thin Cover Revisioning School Camp

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

The PLD 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.


Who is this PLD for?

  • This PLD is relevant to teachers working across the primary and secondary education sector. The underpinning resource, however, focuses primarily on teachers of learners in years 7-10.  
  • Schools wishing to refresh and re-imagine their school camp practices.
  • Schools and teachers seeking support to review their camps and who are interested in implementing innovative and sustainable camp programmes and practices.
