The Junior camps program begins in Foundation and Grade 1 with a special dinner and a variety of activities at school. This fun evening runs from 3:30pm until 7:00pm. In Grade 2 the children stay at school to play games, prepare and eat dinner and sleep at school. In the morning they enjoy breakfast, go for a walk around Lake Bartlett and enjoy some activities before heading home.
The middle section camp program consists of a 2 nights and three days. We currently rotate between Alexandra Adventure Resort Camp and Campaspe Downs Camp in Kyneton. Students participate in outdoor activities such as canoeing, bushwalking, flying fox, ropes course, rock climbing and orienteering. This is a great way for students to work together and build on supportive group work.
The senior school camping program is designed to consolidate the values of co-operation, team work and independence.
Each camp also has an underlying basis of consolidation for content taught in the areas of geography and history. The other key learning areas also form a necessary plank in each year’s camp. The camping program is set up to include a beach/seaside environment (Anglesea) and a history/geography setting in Ballarat, and in particular a day at Sovereign Hill.
