At Northcote Intermediate School, all our students get the opportunity to participate in education outside the classroom. These opportunities provide students with rich learning experiences where they will be pushed outside their comfort zones, develop confidence and resilience, strengthen class bonds with peers and teachers, and make memories for life. As a school, all students get the opportunity to attend school camp. Our camps are held at Finlay Park Adventure Camp, nestled on the edge of the Waikato River, just outside of Cambridge. Finlay Park has an outstanding reputation for delivering great camps and we are very proud to provide this opportunity. Finlay Park runs a variety of activities including – Animal Survival, Rocket, Go Karts, Kayaking, Stand up Paddle Boarding, Indoor Climbing, Shooting, Archery and Axe Throwing, Water Slide, Flying Fox, Blob and Confidence Course.
This will be a major highlight for the year and will provide students with rich learning experiences outside the classroom. Students will develop confidence and resilience and strengthen class bonds with their peers and teachers.

Sensible behaviour at Camp is obviously extremely important. Any behaviour that the Camp Administration considers unacceptable will be dealt with in the following manner:
1. The parents, or the emergency contact of the child concerned, will be called and asked to collect him/her, immediately
2. If neither of the first two contacts called are able to make arrangements to collect the child, arrangements will be made to return the child home and the parents charged expenses
