Kia Ora e te whānau,

This second camp letter is to those of you specifically interested in being a ‘Camp Parent.’ Taking approximately 105 students on camp is a huge undertaking and we can not do it without your help. We need approximately 21 parents to come with us.

What can you expect if you come as a camp parent?

Camp parents…

  • act as parents to ALL children.  
  • spend time with all children at different times, just as your child will spend time with all of the adults at camp.
  • are role models to the students at camp.
  • will supervise a group of students for duties.
  • help settle the children and ensure cabins are orderly.
  • support camp writing.
  • help with the clean up on the final day.

We will be looking for parents with special qualities and skills to enhance the camp experience for our children. 

  1. Not all parents who apply will be selected as the adult student ratio needs to be closely monitored. Any parent who wishes to visit us during the day is more than welcome to join us but please note that there is a small cost. Parents who visit during the day can also join us for meals, but we would need to know this prior to 30th March for catering purposes (and a small charge for meals set by Makahika also applies).

Camp Parents Applications are due in on 3rd February 2020. We will be selecting parents after this date and notifying you by Monday 10th February 2020. We will then get the Police Vetting completed.

Yours sincerely,

Rosie and Mel
