Coaches will provide travel to and from the camp, and additional cars will be present, driven by teachers, for transportation in the case of extentuating circumstances and only with full permission of parents/guardians.

Camp attendees are encouraged to conduct a RAT on the morning of camp departure, and record a negative result, to come on the camp.  If a student is feeling unwell on camp, parents will be contacted and they may be required to pick their child up.
