Halloween at Y4 Camp

Posted by year4

Dear Parents,

It is unfortunate for some families that Year 4 Camp falls on Halloween this year.  But…the good news for students is that we WILL be celebrating Halloween at camp.

This will happen on October 31, the first night of camp.  There will not be any candy and students will not be trick-or-treating, but there will be costumes and lots of fun, Halloween-themed activities.

Students are welcome to bring a costume if they want.  Please remember that they will be responsible for the safe-keeping of anything that is brought on camp.  It is also important to keep in mind that Year 4 students are quite notorious for losing and breaking things while away from home.  We suggest you keep that in mind when choosing  a costume.

If your family does not celebrate Halloween, students are still welcome to bring a costume associated with their favourite book or book character.

Teachers will take lots of pictures and they will be posted on the website for parents to see.  For the most part, these pictures will not be available right away, but we will do our best to post them as soon as we can.  Often we run into difficulties with reliable internet access.


Some other important things for parents to remember:

  • Please do not send any candy or additional food with students, they will be very well fed.
  • Please be aware that parent helpers who come to camp are asked NOT to take pictures and send them via social media.
  • Please make a sensible choice of costume for students so that it is easily kept in their suitcase and requires no help to assemble/wear.

Please make sure you check the camp page on our website for the kit list and the camp schedule.  If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact your class teacher.
