Droxford Junior School

Y3 Camp

Year 3 - Camping overnight on the school field - June

During the Summer term the children in Year 3 will camp overnight on the school field. This is intended to be an introduction to staying away from home with their classmates and the first step on their residential journey at Droxford Junior School.

Children will develop their collaboration and teamwork skills by setting up their own tents in the afternoon before camp. They will participate in fun team building games during the evening, before enjoying a story and hot chocolate. In the morning, they will eat a healthy breakfast and go for an enjoyable, learning experience in the woods and around the fields adjacent to the school. Back at school, Year 6 children take over the teaching and help the Year 3s learn about trees and wildlife on the school grounds.

The children will enjoy a campfire experience as well as being able to enjoy the experience of the wildlife, natural play area and den building equipment.

The children really enjoy staying overnight with their friends and the camp provides an excellent stepping-stone to the longer residential visits in Years 4, 5 and 6.
