Positive Start - FREE Summer Camps for Victorian Children

The Department of Education and Training have announced Free Summer camps for Victorian Children. 


Are you looking to give a child a positive and fun free experience during the summer school holiday period?

Whether a single day or overnight, taking part in a school holiday camp program is a great way for children to try new things, make new friends and enjoy active time in the great outdoors.


The Positive Start in 2022 initiative recognises that students have missed out on these opportunities over the course of the pandemic. They have secured spots for children in grades 3 to 12 to participate in a variety of school camps. The camps are available for children currently in school as well as children in grades 3 to 12 who are disengaged from school but working towards a return.


Note that to book a camp you need to make sure the camp provider knows it is a Positive Start place which may require calling the provider. Some providers may also be able to assist with transportation to their camps as well.


Please also note that camp providers have covid-safe practices in place.
