Middle School Camps Program


The Middle School Camps Program is seen as an integral part of the students learning experience and is structured in line with the College's Vision and Values Statement.   The Program is carefully designed to foster strong relationships between students and staff and to expand their knowledge and life experience.

Year 7 Camp

Year 7 students will travel 90 minutes east of Glen Waverley to the scenic Forest Edge camp, located in Neerim East, where they will spend two nights (three days). The college values of respect, diversity, commitment, perseverance and accomplishment are themes throughout this camp, as students work together and individually to challenge themselves through the structured outdoor adventure activities which may include raft building, flying fox, hut building, camp cooking, archery, bushwalking and a challenging high ropes course.

 

All activities are fully supervised by trained staff, with appropriate safety measures in place when appropriate. This camp takes place in Term 1, allowing students to build new friendships with their classmates and also to build positive relationships with some of their teachers and their house leader. Students will enjoy delicious meals which are cooked by the in house catering team. The approximate cost of the camp is $300, with full details provided to families either on Orientation Day in December or very early in Term 1.
