We are pleased to invite your current Grade 9 student to participate in an overnight trip to Camp White Pine in the Fall of 2019. The excursion will take place just outside of Haliburton, Ontario, from Monday September 30 to Wednesday October 2, 2019. The experience will be fully chaperoned with WTCS teachers, administrators, and Camp White Pine staff.

Camp White Pine will provide our students with a variety of indoor and outdoor experiences in a beautiful setting. Some of the activities will include (but are not limited to): rock climbing, mountain biking, high and low ropes courses, mini golf, a variety of sports, cooperative games, team-building challenges, and arts and crafts.
