Unit 1/2 Physical Education Surf Camp
The camp will enable the students to experience some aspects of our course of study as well as learning more about surf awareness, surfing and bonding together as a group. In class we will have been studying movement and body systems, along with physical activity, sport and exercise. Students will be coached in how to surf and experience and observe various coaching styles and be able to start linking concepts taught in the classroom to a practical application. It is also a great way to reflect on the role the environment plays in physical activity levels and how some initiatives are using surfing to improve ‘connections’ in some communities.
Included in the camp is: transport (in mini buses), 2 hour surf lessons each day (3 in total with qualified instructors, long wetsuits, safe rubberised surfboards and instruction in surf awareness/ surfing), cabin accommodation at the ‘Big 4’ Newhaven Caravan Park and most food.
Students will need to bring lunch for the first day and purchase an evening meal on the Wednesday.
A full equipment list and itinerary will be made available.
