Camps are brilliant; they facilitate friendships and provide students with experiences they may not get at home. They are a lot of fun for sure. However, if teachers give up 2-3 days to support students camp experience should they be bunked up at 9/10 staff per unit? Camps are not cheap so shared accommodation does help keep costs down. But sharing accommodation is not for everyone. The vexatious issue of do you have men/women sleeping in the same area (who cares?) … but what about gay or lesbian teachers (again who cares?) … In a conservative school I suspect that this may present some challenges for the organizers.
He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.John Cotton Dana (1856–1929)
