Engagement - Camps

Students from years 3-6 participate in a camping program.  Students attend camp with their class, and enjoy the challenges, learning and class bonding that exemplifies this fabulous experience.

In 2018 we look forward to the following camping experiences:

  • Years 5’s and 6’s  will visit Ballarat and Sovereign Hill where they will experience life in the 1850’s on the gold fields.  Students will also visit other historical venues in Ballarat, including The Ballarat Observatory. This will be a three day and two night camp to be held in early September. (We last attended the Sovereign Hill camp in 2016 which  developed a greater depth of student historical knowledge about the 1850’s and the growth of democracy).
  • 2019 camp will be another adventure camp to be held at Lake Dewar, near Bacchus Marsh.   The 5-6’s had a great time at this camp last year.  We really would like to thank the fantastic parents and teachers who joined us on this fantastic adventure camp.
  • Years 3's and 4's will enjoy Camp Wyuna on September 4th and 5th.
    The grade 3 / 4 camp program runs on a biannual rotation between the outdoors adventure camp at Camp Sunnystones, Bacchus March, and the coastal beach venue at Camp Wyuna, Queenscliff. 
At both venues children spend one night and two days enjoying the company of fellow students and getting to know their teachers in a different environment.  At Camp Sunnystones students experience bush walks, geocaching, archery and various other bush related activities.  Camp Wyuna offers students beach activities, visits to the Marine Discovery Center and Fort Queenscliff and walks around the Queenscliff environment.


Parent Feedback

'I Just wanted to thank you and the rest of the 5/6 team for your organisation and attendance at the Sovereign Hill Camp. Despite the weather not being the best it obviously didn’t deter from the great events planned.  Ruby came home raving that it was the BEST camp she had ever been on. She gave us a lengthy and detailed recount of the daily events, accommodation and food. According to Ruby everything was AMAZING. It was wonderful to see all the chn and staff dressed up and really taking on their characters. The pre work the chn did regarding their characters made it more authentic and obviously relatable. She really loved retelling her experience with you when revisiting the lolly shop. She said she asked you why you were wanting them to go back into the lolly shop when you had already taken them in there, and your response being ‘for the free samples’ we both laughed out loud.  I know how much preparation goes into organising a camp and how tiring attending can be, so thank you all for all your efforts and providing such a positive experience for the children. In Ruby’s words ‘The beat camp ever’.

Many thanks Nicole.'
