Canoe Cove Band Retreat
I am very pleased to be able to offer the Canoe Cove Band Retreat for the students again this year! The purpose of this event is to provide a time and place for students to develop relationships, to decide on our band goals for the year, to provide an opportunity for students to take on leadership roles, and to rehearse as a full band to focus our efforts for the year.
Here are the details:
Location: Canoe Cove Christian Camp, Canoe Cove, PEI
Time: Students will be bussed to Canoe Cove after school Thursday, Oct.4 and bussed back to Bluefield by 3 pm on Friday, Oct.5. They will then take their regular bus home.
Included: Meals:supper and night snack on Thursday, breakfast/lunch Friday.
Accommodations: We will be using the bunks in the bottom floor of the main building. Overnight security.
What to bring: sleeping bag, pillow, warm and comfortable clothes, band instrument and music, toiletries and towel
Please note: All camp and school rules apply. There is no smoking, drugs, alcohol or weapons allowed on the camp property. A security guard will be on duty overnight. Parents chaperones will be at the camp and the camp managers will be present as well.
Please fill out the medical information form along with any dietary restrictions.
IF YOUR SON/DAUGHTER IS ATTENDING:
Return permission form, medical information form and fee by Friday, Sept.29.
If your son/daughter will not be sleeping overnight, he/she is encouraged to attend the rest of the retreat. Parents are asked to sign out students if they are leaving the camp.
IF YOUR SON/DAUGHTER IS NOT ATTENDING, PLEASE EMAIL ME.
Thanks for your support!
