Integral to the Townshend curriculum are the outdoor education camps for Levels I-IV. Each year level departs for a three-day camp, where the focus is on the development of different physical skills and strengths and gives students exposure to a range of outdoor leisure activities.
Rain or shine, the camps provide a wonderful opportunity to develop teamwork and positive group dynamics, personal confidence, leadership, joy of the outdoors, resilience and courage. Of course there’s also the fun of seeing the teachers taking risks and trying out new things!
Each year in winter you have the opportunity to sign up for the school ski-trip. It’s a popular event. Students and staff break out the skis and snow-boards and are accompanied by qualified winter-sport instructors so even beginners can learn and have fun.
