Outdoor Education

The Grade 7 Camp Impeesa is a go!!!  The fire situation has improved significantly with cooler temperatures and much needed precipitation.  As such, the student camp fee of $175 is to be turned in by Friday, Sept 29 so that final plans can be made with regards to student numbers.  If you did not get the opportunity to attend the parent meeting, you will find a copy of the presentation here.

 

Just a reminder for those Grade 7-9 Outdoor Leadership students to have paid their course fees or have made arrangements with the office administration prior to participating with our backpacking trips. 
  • If you are needing to visit the parent presentation regarding the Elbow Lake backpacking trip again, you will find it here.
  • In preparation for our trips, students are reminded to bring in their rain gear (jackets/pants) for testing with the Hunter Education students on Monday, Sept 25 and Tuesday Sept 26.  Also the following video link will help our first time adventures learn to pack their packs correctly.  Please watch this and note how all clothing, equipment and gear can fit into a 65 L backpack.  School gear (backpacks/stuff sacs/etc) will be handed out to students on September 28/29.

 

Welcome back to another year of great Outdoor Adventures at Westmount School!

We are only a few days into the year, but many exciting things are happening.  This year we are offering three different grade level camps for our students.  Our Grade 5 students will be attending Kamp Kiwanis on Sept 18-19, our Grade 6 students are off again to Camp Chief Hector from Nov. 01-03 and finally our Grade 7 students are off to Camp Impeesa near Beaver Mines, AB.

As with all overnight camps, FSD policy requires that we have a mandatory face to face parent information meeting.  These meetings will be held in our gymnasium starting at 7:00 pm.  They are scheduled as follows,

Grade 5 Kamp Kiwanis      Wednesday, Sept 06

Grade 6 Camp Chief Hector   Wednesday, Sept 27 

Grade 7 Camp Impeesa     Thursday, Sept 14

In addition, both Outdoor Leadership classes have backpacking trips going out in October, their parent information meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept 12.  Hope to see everyone there!
