Camps at Gembrook Primary School
The Gembrook Camp Program endeavours to promote the development of our students’ independence and self-reliance, in addition to fostering such social skills as co-operation, tolerance, leadership and environmental awareness.
The program aims are:
- To provide an opportunity for students to experience the richness of camp communal life in a variety of environmental settings.
- To give students the opportunities to further develop friendships and relationships with fellow students and teachers in a different setting
- To reinforce the school values of respect and high expectations in another setting.
To provide Camp/Outdoor Education experiences which promote the values of independence, safe risk taking, having a go, respect and community
