The Geography Collective Camp is 2 months away – #GCCamp

November 24, 2013

We’ve been beavering away in the background and have started to put the programme together for our Camp focused on the Curriculum.  The exact programme will respond to the needs of attendees.  This isn’t a conference, but there will be a wealth of ideas and experience as well as Guerrilla Geography ideas.  We will be located in the Surrey Hills, so will have Box Hill on the doorstep.

Sessions confirmed are:

  • Curriculum Creation sessions – focused on the new National Curriculum;
  • On and off-site fieldwork, including a geocaching practical;
  • Informal ‘TeachMeet’ style evening sessions;
  • How to assess geographical progress without levels.

This is a grass-roots, non-profit making venture and all fees cover accommodation, board and activities.  This isn’t a traditional conference, and you won’t be spoken to much.  There will be loads of collaboration and personalisation.  The weekend is being put together by:

  • David Rogers, Assistant Headteacher and recipient of the RGS Ordnance Survey Award for Excellence in Geography Teaching;
  • Daniel Raven-Ellison, National Geographic Emerging Explorer;
  • Jo Debens, Head of Priory Geography, a GA Centre of Excellence;
  • Sam Atkins, member of the Priory Geography Team.

There are a handful of early bird tickets left before we go into the full price tickets. Even at £175, this weekend is great value when compared to many commercial courses. Get your tickets here.
