Camps and excursions are an integral part of the school curriculum as they enable students to explore, extend and enrich their learning and their social skills development, in a non-school setting.

Camps and excursions encourage students to develop teamwork and leadership skills, resilience, resourcefulness, independence and cooperation. They enable students to learn, share experiences and cement friendships in a fun and engaging way.

 

Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund

The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund is provided by the Victorian Government to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities for their children.

School camps provide children with inspiring experiences in the great outdoors, excursions encourage a deeper understanding of how the world works and sports teach teamwork, discipline and leadership. The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund ensures that every student will have the opportunity to join their classmates for these important, educational and fun activities.

If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or you are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible. The allowance of $225 per secondary school student is paid to the college for each year of eligibility, to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions or sporting activities for the benefit of your child.

To apply, complete the application form and take it to one of our campus offices with your concession details.
