Middle School Grade 8 Camp
21-25 January 2019
Pulau Ubin (Jelutong Campsite) and Aloha Loyang (Jalan Loyang Besar)

As part of the Middle School program, there will be a camp for Grade 8 during the week of 21 to 25 January 2019. The camp will be organised by CAMELOT at Pulau Ubin (Jelutong Campsite) and Aloha Loyang (Jalan Loyang Besar). Camp A will take place from Monday to Wednesday, 21 to 23 January 2019. Camp B will take place from Wednesday to Friday, 23 to 25 January 2019.

Camp A (Homebases 8.02, 8.04, 8.06, 8.08) will leave school by school bus at 9:30am on Monday, 21 January, returning to OFS on Wednesday, 23 January 2019 by 3:15pm in the school cafeteria.

Camp B (Homebases 8.01, 8.03, 8.05, 8.07, 8SPP1, 8SPP2 and 8SPP3) will leave school by school bus at 9:30am on Wednesday, 23 January, returning to OFS on Friday, 25 January 2019 by 3:15pm in the school cafeteria.

The camp is an integral part of our program and is an opportunity for Grade 8 students to build relationships with each other. We strongly recommend that all Grade 8 students attend the camp.

The camp is focused on team building and developing individual awareness. Students will spend one night at Pulau Ubin (Jelutong Campsite) and one night at Aloha Loyang (Jalan Loyang Besar). In Pulau Ubin, they will be sleeping in a tent outdoors and in Aloha Loyang, they will be staying in chalets. They will also be challenged to cook their own dinner, where all ingredients and equipment will be supplied to each team. All activities are designed to build the attributes of IB learners, such as risk-taking, communication and caring for each other. Additional camp brochures will be available on the OFS homepage. The camps will be supervised throughout by both OFS staff and our camp providers.

The cost of the trip will be S$500 (includes GST). The school will bill this to the family account. This includes two nights accommodation, activities, meals, drinks and all transportation. This payment is non-refundable.

We hope the camp will prove to be both enjoyable and educational and that your child/ward will greatly benefit from it. Please return the permission slip to the Homebase teacher by Wednesday, 28 November 2018.
