Case Studies from Revisioning School Camps PLD (2018-2020)

Find these superb case studies compiled at the end of a professional learning journey made available to schools through the Ministry of Education Networks of Expertise funding. The PLD supported teachers to develop localised, place-responsive and student-centred school camp programmes. We hope that by sharing these case studies you will come away feeling inspired to revision your own camp experiences or to try out some of the ideas shared by our case study schools.

Further experiences in introducing re-envisaged thinking to Camp 

These video and audio clips provide insights into different approaches taken in reshaping school camp in line with key themes of Revisioning School Camps and the drivers for change. They were submitted by EONZ members in response to key questions posed by the writer of the resource, Jocelyn Papprill.  Many thanks to the people that submitted material.
