Camping Program

This program is gradually introduced to students as they enter the Primary Section of the school. Their first experience is a late stay at school, then to an overnight stay at a camp/lodge. In the lower Primary section the length of stay is increased to 2 nights stay. The Intermediate and Senior students attend different settings and may stay up to 4 nights. We currently access Manyung Camp in Mornington and Blackwood Special Schools Camp near Ballarat.

The program is to reinforce and encourage:

  • Independent Life Skills - Providing an opportunity to practise their skills - e.g. dressing, showering, helping prepare food and cleaning up.
  • The development of friendship groups
  • Participation in a variety of new experiences – canoeing, archery, physical challenges under very careful supervision.

Camping Program

Camps enable our students to experience different environments, engage in a variety of new recreational activities and take on responsibilities and participate in a social program.
