Camping

The camping program is viewed as an essential component of all childrens’ total education.  The program has been designed to meet the needs of students, offering them the opportunity to develop recreational skills, social skills and relate classroom studies to real-life situations.

 

Through participation in the camping program students have the opportunity to develop self-esteem, social responsibility, cooperation, tolerance and understanding, communication skills with both staff and students as well as an appreciation for our natural environment and a desire to conserve these areas for the future.

 

The Year 7 Camp has a strong orientation theme and is held early in the year in the local district. The current format of the camp is based on form groups with a strong emphasis on developing close relationships, including peers and teacher relations. The students complete a series of activities, which encourage the development of supportive and cooperative learning skills.

 

The Year 9 camp is based in the Grampians and is the culmination of a Semester of preparation in the Personal Development area. Year 9 students attend camp for three days duration.

 

The Year 10 camp is based in Melbourne and involves a city experience.

 

Year 9 and 10 and VCE students are given the opportunity (when it is available) to attend Melbourne-based camps and activities.  These are organised by individual faculties and can occur both in school holiday periods or throughout the academic year.

 

Other camps are offered from time to time, depending on staffing and student interest, such as the “Snow Trip” or overseas activities. We suggest you encourage your child to earn their own money for part or whole of the expenses, which will be incurred.
