The Grade 8 tour is returning to Loon Lake Camp this year at the end of January. So far the response to this trip has been good. A reminder to all that we would like your forms and payments by October 21, 2019.

The Grade 9 Band/Choir/Strings tour is the Cantando Festival in Whistler BC at the beginning of May.
