Nord Anglia Expeditions China, 2019 Y3 Parent-Son/Daughter Camping Trip

In our efforts to offer more opportunities for our younger Primary age students regionally within our regional event offerings, The British School Nanjing is proud to share the details of the second ever Year 3 Parent/Son-Daughter Camping trip to Nanjing, China.

All event activities will take place on site or nearby at the host school The British School Nanjing over the 3 days. In addition to setting up their camp-site with tents provided by BSN, activities will include hiking, climbing, varying activities, and social time which will introduce our parents and students to many other Nord Anglia Education China schools.

The event is only open to Year 3 students and their parents. One parent must attend with their child, and in rare instances siblings within the same year group (Year 3) are both eligible to attend.
