Summer 2017 School Holiday Program Info & Application

Print Friendly

This year there have been several changes to the number of camps on offer, the variety of locations, the length of the camp with some camps  finishing on a Saturday.

One significant change is that we will not be running a High Phys camp in the same format as previously. We will, however, be running another regular camp that is slower paced, slightly smaller and will accommodate those currently accessing High Phys camps. Participants will have a range of support needs. This camp is the Tootgarook Camp.

This summer we have camps and a day activity running from our site at Yarraburn in Yarra Junction. Families living in the Yarra Valley area will be given preference for these.

  • TO APPLY: click https://goo.gl/forms/0ANm775ZdKkr9aB73  Information on eligibility criteria, funding etc are also included in the application form.
  •  Applications are due by 5pm Wednesday 16th November 2016. All applications received after this time they will be allocated low priority.
