For the first time since the onset of covid overnight trips finally returned to the Outdoor Education calendar in the form of the Skills Night campout. Given the busy holiday weekend this trip took place at a new location of Tamihi Meadows Campground. Students learnt how to set up a tent, cook on a camp burner, and the importance of packing efficiently. The night was spent skipping rocks on the river and enjoying a campfire both on the riverbanks and back at camp. And yes, just to clarify for the international students, Mr. Rahe does cook his oatmeal before he eats it. Lots of smiles and memories at the end of this one and excitement for the upcoming multi day backpacking trip! Outdoor Education students (and anyone else who wants to) leave a 100 word response below.
