At North Geelong Secondary College, we value the camping experience very highly, due to the benefits of socialisation, team work and fun. Many friendships are forged and strengthened during the camping experience as students work together in a variety of challenging, fun and team building activities.
An important element of the Year 7 Transition Program at North Geelong Secondary College is the Year Level camp that is held in Term One. Students spend three days (two nights) at the Burnside Camp in Anglesea, engaging in activities that include surfing, horse riding, ropes courses, and team problem solving tasks.
The Year 8 students travel to Halls Gap for their camp in Term Three. The camp focusses on building resilience and problem-solving skills and developing respect and appreciation for the environment and community around them. It providing students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in new surroundings providing an immersive experience in Indigenous Culture.
Student leaders are given the opportunity to further develop their skills on our camps. The Year 8 student leaders travel to Kooyoora State Park for three days participating in a base style camping environment. While the Year 10 leaders journey to Rubicon for five days and participate in a broad range of leadership activities.
Students in the Outdoor Education courses have opportunities to participate in camps from Year 10 to 12 and an extensive range of outdoor programs, including a Year 12 Ski Camp.
The college participates in all competitions conducted by the Bellarine and Barwon Divisions of School Sport Victoria including swimming, athletics, cross country, soccer, football, netball, volleyball, cricket, basketball, baseball, badminton, softball and tennis.
