Grade 4 Camp

Tillicum has had a long standing tradition for our Grade 4 students by attending Grade 4 Camp.  This also goes in accordance with our Grade 4 curriculum where the students get to see and experience firsthand the natural environment of the Pacific West Coast and study the traditions and history the Aboriginal peoples from this area.  DSC_1050.JPG
The students go to North Vancouver Outdoor School, located at the Cheakamus Centre in beautiful Squamish. During their 3 day, 2 night stay, the students take part in many activities including: nature walks, salmon studies at the hatchery, farm studies, eagle watching and we are privileged to be able to spend an evening in the Coast Salish Bighouse.
Grade 4 Camp costs a fee of approximately $300. Our generous Parent Advisory Committee pays for half and as a school we are actively fundraising through bake sales and an ongoing Recycling/Bottle Drive to help support the remainder of the camp cost. This has always been a highlight for our Grade 4 students providing them with many wonderful memories and experiences before leaving Tillicum.
