 Camp Celtic & Fundraising


Our Grade 8's annual Graduation Trip to Camp Celtic, which is in Lions Head on the Bruce Peninsula.


Tuesday May 26, 2019 - Friday May 29, 2019


Your child should have brought home the following forms:

Camp Celtic Spring Camper Registration - this form is filled out and returned to Tweedsmuir. Once all forms are received, they are sent to Camp Celtic. Information is shared with the camp nurse and head counsellor of your child's cabin. Information regarding medication can be updated one week prior to camp by talking to Ms. Eccles, or by emailing Camp Celtic. It is important to include your child's health card number on this form, and an up-to-date emergency contact.

Parent/Guardian Permission Form - Camp Celtic - this form includes the same information as the first form, but is a version for the school records and will be kept with supervising teachers at camp in case of emergency. Again, please ensure this information is up-to-date as teachers will not have access to school methods of communication.


Total cost of trip $ 620.00 in 5 payments which includes transportation, meals, and accommodations for this 4 days 3 nights trip.
