School Camps

Cave Hill Creek is a leading provider of School Camps in Victoria. We offer residential camps, bush camp outs and journey based programs, with a range of fun and challenging outdoor adventure activities. School Camp is a vital part of childhood development where students learn new life skills, build confidence and develop friendships. We are available to help facilitate and support your cohort’s needs whilst on camp.

Our school camp program focuses on developing a child’s love for the outdoors through challenging and fun activities – from canoeing, abseiling, mountain biking and ropes courses, to archery, hut and raft building, bushwalks, orienteering, bush cooking and so much more!

School camp is an important place for students to develop life skills, relationships (both with their peers and teachers), independence and resilience. Our award-winning school camp programs are catered towards cultural and indigenous awareness, environmental consciousness and sustainability. Our school camp program outcomes can be mapped to the Victorian curriculum to help schools meet their curriculum needs.

  • Residential Camp
    At Cave Hill Creek, we understand that not all students have received an outdoor education before, and for many Cave Hill Creek is their first experience being away from their family. This makes our Residential Camps the perfect entry point for a student’s first time school camp. During Residential Camp we host outdoor activities that are facilitated by camp staff and school teachers.It is suitable for students ranging from Year 3 to Year 7 attending their first ever camp, and also as a pastoral retreat for Year 11s and 12s. Residential Camp is also a popular choice to host school music groups and school sports teams. All meals and equipment are provided and you will be staying in our Lakeview Lodge bunk rooms (or Glamping Village, depending on the size of the group) during Residential Camp, so you only have to pack your personal items.
  • Bush & Base Camp
    Bush & Base Camps is the next step up for students who have already been on School Camp at least once before and are ready to have their first ever experience in setting up a base camp and pitching a tent in the forest. This is perfect for students from Grade 5 through to Year 9 and is ideal for large groups who are excited to trek around and stay at the Mt. Cole State Forest campground. Get ready to spend 3-4 nights camping under the stars, and depending on the size of your school group you may spend a night in our Lakeview Lodge bunk rooms or Glamping Village.Bush & Base Camp outdoor activities and camping is facilitated by our experienced camp staff. This is a terrific opportunity for students to really embrace the outdoors, learn basic life skills, strengthen friendships and have a blast doing it!
  • Journey Based Camps & Wild Mount Adventures
    Take advantage of the highly regarded walking trails on our doorstep. We host a number of different guided overnight walks and journey based camps to satisfy your adventurous spirit. Our experienced expedition coordinators can cater guided walks to your School group, incorporating breathtaking views, intimate knowledge of local fauna and flora, as well as imparting awareness and understanding of the indigenous origins of the area.Cave Hill Creek’s journey based camps are for experienced campers who have a solid foundation of outdoor education. Our 2-5 day guided walks on the Beeripmo Walk are fun and rewarding outdoor experiences for secondary school students aimed at developing independence, resilience and teamwork.
  • Mount Cole & The Beeripmo Walk
    Mount Cole is known to the local Indigenous Beeripmo Balgug people as ‘Beereep Beereep’ or the ‘Wild Mount’. The Beeripmo Walk is a superb looped 17km trail that starts close to the Cave Hill Creek, traverses the peaks of the Mount Cole range and comes back around to near the base camp.The Beeripmo Walk is a perfect introduction to overnight walking for secondary school students. Walkers are rewarded with commanding vistas of the surrounding basalt plains and Grampians. Our specialist guides lead small school groups on a fun and rewarding journey that is aimed at developing independence, resilience and teamwork.

    Meals and bushwalking equipment (e.g. backpacks, tents, sleeping mats, cooking stoves etc.) are provided throughout the journey. Also note: Campgrounds are accessible to vehicles with mobile reception being available.
