The EPS Camps and Outdoor Education program provides experiences that promote lifelong engagement with both active leisure and learning pursuits. Our program promotes the EPS school values of resilience, respect, responsibility and excellence and enables young people to demonstrate independence, leadership, cooperation, tolerance and empathy towards others. In Years 3 and 4 the students participate in a two night camp at Phillip Island Tourist Resort and Arrabri Lodge, Warburton (alternate years). In Year 5 students go on a four night camp to Coonawarra Farm Resort in East Gippsland and in Year 6 they spend four nights at Merricks Lodge on the Mornington Peninsula.
Camps are a highlight of the middle and senior school at EPS. Students love the activities as well as having fun with their peers and teachers in different environments. We provide information sessions before camp to outline the camp activities and to answer parents’ questions.
