When I was at school, it was common for children to go away with the school for a few days when they were nearing their final days at the school - so they would have been either 10 or 11. However, our school wants to take younger children camping, of age 7 and 8, and I can't help but think that it's just too young to be away from parents for that long.
Am I being paranoid? Is this something that a lot of schools do these days?
I just thought I would try to get some opinions. I doubt he would be very impressed if I didn't let him go, but he has never, ever been away from me before.
