Year 6 Camp

Monday 18th - Friday 22nd June


We will travel to Penzance via Scillonian and then head to Henry’s Campsite at The Lizard, which will be our base for the week. We are hiring 8 man tents (which will be pitched and ready for us when we arrive). The campsite owners have kindly agreed to us using their undercover facilities for meals, as well as reserving their wonderful fire-pit area for us to use exclusively for one of the evenings of our camp. Henry’s are used to welcoming groups of children to their campsite and I know we will all enjoy the colourful, friendly environment of their very popular venue!


We are a large group this year, so I have negotiated with Dan Joel at Poldhu Surf School for two days of surfing tuition. Half of the group will surf for a day, while the other half enjoy coastal hiking​ and on the following day we will swap.


A ‘Town Day’ is also planned, when we will go Treasure Trailing in groups; using our teamwork and navigational skills to follow clues that may lead us to unexpected places! There will be at least 5 adults accompanying the children on their camp; including Wez and Erica Swain, Emily Sladen and myself. We are also hoping to take the opportunity to meet up with Y6 children from St Hilary and Landewednack schools during the week.


Costing and a payment schedule for the trip will follow shortly.


Looking forward to what I’m sure will be a very memorable adventure!
