The P&C Association is pleased to present the Dads & Kids Camp Out for 2017. This will be held on the school grounds on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February. This is our fifth Dads & Kids Camp Out, designed for Dads and Father figures to spend time with their children.

Tickets cost $15 per family and are available from https://www.trybooking.com/258559. Tickets are only available through the online service. There are no cash sales. The ticket provides access to the venue, a simple cooked breakfast on Sunday morning, and a small take-home item for each family group.

The event is open to all families with children at Mt Lawley Primary School: if Dad isn't available then please come along with Mum. Instructions for the event are provided below.

This event is run by the P&C Association, with the support of The Fathering Project.

We hope you can join us for another great Camp Out.

 Mount Lawley Primary P . & C. in conjunction with the Fathering Project and YouCare are once again holding a Dads & Kids Camp Out on Saturday 22 – Sunday 23 February  in the school’s quadrangle.

The Camp is based on a model produced by The Fathering Project. The Fathering Project is a University of Western Australia-based non-profit team of professionals whose aim is to help fathers realise how important they are in a child’s life and to give them advice on how to encourage their children.

Their work is also aimed at father figures such as grandfathers, stepfathers, uncles, mentors, youth leaders, teachers, pastors and coaches, knowing that many children do not have much father contact at all.

YouthCARE provides a broad range of services including In-School Chaplaincy, Support Chaplaincy and Christian Religious Education.
