Grade 8 Camp 

Early in the year all grade 8's participate in a 2 day retreat held at Camp Stillwood. While this is an optional event, all grade 8's are encouraged to attend because part of the Grade 8 Career and Personal Planning program will also be presented at this time. Students choosing not to attend camp will have to do a make-up assignment on their own time. New friendships that last throughout high school are formed along with an opportunity to meet teachers, peer counsellors and support staff.
