Home / Special Announcements / Camps Week 2022

 

Wodonga Middle Years College’s Camps Week Program aims to provide students the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with peers and WMYC staff while experiencing unique activities and destinations. Students can design their own Camps Week from an extensive list of options to suit their individual needs.

You can download the 2022 Camps Week Booklet here.

The Camps Week program aims to:

  • Improve physical and mental health through development of interest in outdoor recreation as a non-competitive and individually fulfilling activity.
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop skills of co-operative living, leadership, social responsibility, and social acceptance.
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop a sense of personal involvement and fulfilment and to be part of a caring community, as well as to interact with and be of service to the wider community.
  • Provide opportunity to develop existing relationships and form new ones.
  • Encourage students to develop a fuller understanding and appreciation of the natural environment and encouraging them to become comfortable in “living with nature”.
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop an understanding of their own capabilities and limitations of others, through a variety of experiences in the “outdoors”.
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop the attitudes and skills associated with self-reliance, especially in an outdoor situation; to develop self confidence and self-esteem through activities conducted in both urban and natural environments.
  • Provide opportunity for students to express and extend their individual talents and have these recognised in a supportive way.
  • Provide mental and emotional satisfaction and practical benefit from exploring and developing an understanding of healthy risk-taking activities.

Selecting your Camp

Advertising for the 2022 Camps Week will occur on Monday 13 September 2021. Camps/Activities can be booked online via edval using a link and web code that will be emailed to you, or via the Huon and Felltimber Administration Offices from Monday 4 October 2021. All 2022 Camps Week information will be advertised on the College website and social media sites.

All students are required to plan and book a program for their Camps Week. Online bookings close Friday 29 October 2021. Any student who has not made a booking will then be contacted to ensure they are involved in Camps Week.

Once selections have been made, a non-refundable deposit is required as soon as possible to secure your position on the camp/activities you have chosen. All deposits must be paid by Friday 29 October 2021. After this time, if your deposit is not recorded your selection/s will be removed, and you will need to re-submit your preferences. Please contact the Administration Office if you are unable to meet the deposit requirements.

All camp payments can be made via the WMYC School Portal App or via BPay, please contact the Administration Office if you are unable to access the School Portal App on Ph: (02) 6057 9000.

Use the time between now and Monday 4 October 2021 to talk with parents, friends, teachers involved and students who may have participated in that activity in previous years.

Note: Families may be able to use 2020/2021 CSEF money or credits on family accounts if funds are available to help pay for a camp deposit. 2022 CSEF money is typically made available in March during Term 1, 2022.
