Grade 7 Field Trip

Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 7 students,

Welcome to the Senior Division at Fern!

An overnight trip at the beginning of the year has been part of our Grade 7 tradition for many years. It is a great opportunity for all Fern students to get to know each other outside their regular classrooms. Your child will be involved in cooperative games and physical activities in an outdoor environment while developing their leadership and teamwork skills.

This October we are going back to Pinecrest Camp from October 6th to October 8th. The estimated cost of the trip is around 200 dollars.

Camp Pinecrest is a YMCA camp that has hosted numerous TDSB schools on overnight trips. Some of the outdoor activites offered and lead by experienced staff include Canoeing, Archery, High and Low Ropes, and Nature Walks. The site has heated cabins where our students will sleep in groups of 10. All of the meals at YMCA Camp Pine Crest are pre-approved by a nutritionist and accommodate all dietary concerns.

For further information about the camp or our trip please look at the YMCA web-site:

Permission forms with detailed information will be handed out early September.

We would like all Grade 7 students to join us on this trip; financial help may be available if needed. For additional inquires about the trip or if you have any financial concerns please e-mail me at or you can reach me by phone at the school (416-393-9130).
