Students at Fairfield Primary School attend camps in Grades 4-6. Our camps are age and purpose specific, curriculum based and have been designed to build confidence and provide a unifying experience. Camps provide an opportunity for students to bond in an informal setting, away from school. Students gain news perspectives, meet new friends and are challenged in a unique, safe and exciting experience. Students build resilience and confidence and feel open to new ideas. They also gain practical skills and a healthy respect for the Australian bush.

Grade 4 Mt Evelyn Camp

Our Grade 4 students have their first school camp experience with an overnight stay at the Mt Evelyn YMCA Recreational Camp, approximately one hour drive from the school. The Grade 4 camp has been developed to encourage and enhance personal growth as well as strengthen a sense of community for all students. Students are involved in a variety of activities which promotes team and resilience building and group problem solving.

The Camp offers a range of beach, water, challenge, environmental and team building activities for all to enjoy. All activities are supervised by professional Outdoor Education instructors and provide safe and age-appropriate challenges that allow students to develop physical confidence, expand their friendship groups and have a great time.


Grade 6 Camp Jungai

Our Grade 6 students spend a week at Camp Jungai, located in the scenic Rubicon Valley, two hours from Melbourne. The camp is a five-day outdoor education camp with an Indigenous cultural program. Developed with specialist input from the Taungurung people, Camp Jungai’s cultural sessions are the centrepiece of their offerings. Some examples of the Indigenous cultural education sessions offered are; bush tucker and medicine, crafts, storytelling, boomerang painting and throwing. Alongside the cultural sessions are the outdoor education activities, which are designed to allow students to put themselves out there, enjoy new experiences and be active outdoors. Some of these activities include; canoeing, bush walking, ‘grow it, cook it’, bushcraft, and raft building.
