Camps at Traralgon
One of the most exciting and memorable aspects of school is the fun and challenge of going on a camp. Camps are an integral part of the learning program in each year level, adding depth to classroom learning.
Being on camp gives your child the chance to think, enquire and reflect upon their personal development, the world they live in, and where they want to head into the future. Camps are also wonderful opportunities for your child to strengthen their friendships and explore new places.
On every camp we aim to develop community and to build quality relationships between students and staff. We will encourage your child to take on new challenges and participate in new experiences to develop their confidence and resilience, and give them fresh perspectives on their life and environment.
The 2016 camp program at Traralgon campus commences in Year 3 with a combined Year 3 & 4 Phillip Island camp. Years 5 & 6 will head to Mill Valley Ranch for a taste of outdoor adventure and horse riding.
In Year 7 and 8 your child will head back to Phillip Island for another adventure-based camp. Many children join us in Year 7 from a variety of primary schools, so this is a great opportunity for your child to form new friendships and bond with other students as a team as they embark on their secondary schooling together. Year 9 students also head to Mill Valley Ranch where they will learn to ride and care for horses. They will also take part in a number of adventure activities including water sports and team building activities.
The Traralgon camp program continues into Senior School with a Melbourne City camp in Year 10, where your child will get to experience new aspects of city life and learn to navigate public transport around the city. Year 12 students take part in an exciting camp at The Summit.
