Recently, 16 students in Yrs 4 to Yr 6 and seven staff from NextSense School came for a two-day camp at The Tops. Students from this school have additional needs and so an inclusive, supportive environment that can cater for students’ individual needs is important to them.
Teamwork and having fun were the desired outcomes for the school, so our Program Team carefully designed a program of activities and experiences to cater to this. During their time with us they participated in Archery, Carts, Giant Swing, Survivor, Vertical Cluster and Fireside.
They loved their time at The Tops and sent some thoughtful and encouraging handmade thank you cards and messages to the outdoor educators and staff.
“Dear Tops Staff, thank you for ensuring that the students from NextSense School had the most amazing camp experience! We appreciate how responsive and attentive you were to our students and how you listened to and applied feedback from our staff. We cannot wait to visit again! From Lou, Kellie, Chris, Paul and Rebekah (NextSense School Staff).”
The students also wrote and shared their appreciation of The Tops team:
“Kind, helpful, trustful, happy and funny. Camp is the Best.” – Joumana
“We appreciate everything that you did for us and we loved how you cared for us” – Sam
“Thank you camp. I had lots of fun.” – Alexa
Connecting with children who have a wide range of social and learning abilities is a strength of The Tops outdoor education experiences and uniquely positions it to offer an experience that enables students to explore, to feel known, cared for and understood in a fun and encouraging environment.
