What Students Need to Pack
If you have not already started paying your fees for this trip, please take care of this immediately. We require your fees to pay for the bus and our clinicians, as well as our accommodations. No late payments will be accepted unless you have already made such arrangements with Mrs. Bennett at the school (403) 652-2231.
Really looking forward to this!
It's been a few years since I've done this trip, and I'm looking forward to it all! A special thank you to our chaperones Sheena Bamlett, Sabrina Draper, Bryn Hermanski, Graham Osborne, Derek Rowe and Nicole Warin. Without these wonderful volunteers, our trip would not be possible, and I know they will love this trip! Extra Chaperone information provided by the Pioneer Camp Staff is available here.
See you all Friday!
Mr. Windsor will provide you with some interesting hints, help, advice, and resources on this page.
