Term 3, Week 5: Aug 17 - 21

Every year Kowhai Intermediate send 2 sports camp teams made up of 25 students per team to Matamata, Totara Springs, to compete against 6 different schools from around the North Island. Students play up to 18 different sports over a week from morning to night and experience fair play, team work, resilience, sportsmanship, as well as enhance their sporting ability. 
Students need to apply by filling out the form below, as well as trialing for different sports. We look for students who are fit, have positive attitudes, team players, committed, sportmanship and also a high level of talent for 2 or more sports. A list of sports played at sports camp is included on the application form. Students can apply between now and the 8th June (term 2, week 8). The cost of sports camp will be $175, however, this may be lowered depending on funding or fundraising. For more information, please contact Sarah Clayton, Sports Director (sarahclayton@kowhai.school.nz)
