At Leongatha Primary School, we are proud to offer fun and educational camps to all of our students.
School Camp Program
- Prep – Camp Day at school
- Grade 1 – Camp Day at school with after school activities and dinner
- Grade 2 – Camp Day at school followed by a sleepover
- Grade 3 – Cowes Camp – 3 days
- Grade 4 – Woorabinda Camp – 3 days
- Grade 5 – Melbourne – 3 days
- Grade 6 – Wilson’s Prom Camp – 3 days
The above camps and day excursions are planned to support and enrich classroom programs. Children are offered a wide range of first hand experiences supported by pre and post excursion activities.
Camping programs are designed to stimulate and challenge the children so that learning may be extended and independence fostered in a socially supportive environment external from the home and school.
Wherever possible camps and excursions will be spaced at reasonable intervals throughout the year and parents will be notified through information nights and in writing of proposed activities and costs involved.
Parents will be offered the opportunity to pay camp costs by installments prior to the due date.
