Black Rock Primary School - Camps




Students have the opportunity to attend camps in Years Three, Four, Five and Six. Camps are a great opportunity for students to develop independence, initiative and team building skills. Our Camps program offers students a variety of experiences.

Year Three Camp

Students in Year Three spend one night at the Briars Camp in Mount Martha. Here they complete many activities including, hut building, the giant swing, damper making, completing an obstacle course and archery. The aim of the camp is to build students independence, interpersonal and personal learning with a physical education focus.

Year Four Camp

Our Year Four camp has an Australian History focus. Students visit Sovereign Hill for three days and two nights. During their time at Sovereign Hill, students learn about what life was like on the goldfields in the 1850's. They explore a gold mine, pan for gold, enjoy an old style school lesson and attend "Blood on the Southern Cross". 

Year Five Camp

Year Five students continue building up their independence, initiative and social skills when they spend four days at “The Island” located in Cowes on Phillip Island. They currently test their nerve on the Giant Swing, Flying Fox and mechanical wall amongst other activities. Students also get a chance to visit A Maze'N Things, Smiths Beach and enjoying the wildlife at the Penguin Parade and Phillip Island Wildlife Park.

Year Six Camp

Year Six students travel up to Canberra for a week to learn about Australia's democracy and explore our nation’s capital. Some of the highlights of the trip are the visits to Parliament House, Old Parliament House, The Australian Institute of Sport, The High Court, Questacon, the embassy drive and the National Gallery.
