Welcoming the return of school tent camping
Outdoors SA welcomes the announcement yesterday (2 March 2022) from the Department for Education instructing school principals and school staff that school camps will be permitted from the start of week 7.
This is exciting news for the many camp providers and students that have been waiting for their chance to get school camping happening.
Outdoors SA has been working hard behind the scenes with a range of government stakeholders from education, health and treasury to provide a clear understanding of the value that our sector provides and the many educational and health benefits camp brings to thousands of students across the state.
This is the first steps in seeing camps return in a staggered way and Outdoors SA will continue to advocate for the full return of all school based outdoor programs.
We are thankful for the support of many members that have been fully committed to the advocacy work of Outdoors SA whilst also trying to keep their organisations afloat.
If you are impacted by the cancellation of school camping programs please contact Outdoors SA via email at email@example.com , we would love to have you on board.
