Yr 11 Melbourne Experience

The City Camp aims to introduce students to independent travel, accomodation, shopping, work and educational experiences in Melbourne. The camp is for three days and it aims to make students sufficiently familiar with tram, train and bus procedures to independently move throughout the CBD and suburbs of Melbourne. The camp offers students significant flexibility in choosing locations to travel to, including major educational institutions, sporting venues, commercial and industrial areas, retail shopping strips and malls, and sightseeing and entertainment facilities. The camp has run since 2001 and has always been enthusiastically completed by our students, with students gaining much more confidence in considering Melbourne as a potential work, educational or recreational location. The camp has been part-sponsored by the Mount Beauty Rotary Club and the school and students are very grateful for the significant financial contributions made, as it makes the camp affordable for all students.
