Revisioning School Camps

Revisioning School Camps
This resource supports teaching and learning in Years 7-10 with the development of localised, place-responsive, student-centred school camp programmes for schools.

Education Outdoors New Zealand (EONZ) produced this excellent teaching resource, written by Jocelyn Papprill (with funding from the Ministry of Education), along with opportunities for schools and teachers to engage with ongoing teacher professional learning.

Case Studies

For inspiration and ideas about how to get started, you can read stories, watch videos or listen to podcast recordings from schools who took part in the Revisioning School Camps PLD between 2018 - 2020.

Equity of access was a significant driver in the re-design of the Year 10 camp at Matamata College. This camp is now grounded by the four signposts for place responsive pedagogy, developed by Wattchow and Brown (2011). Place-responsiveness is one of the key concepts unpacked in the Revisioning School Camps resource and PLD.
