Camps and Excursions

Haddon Primary School has a sequential camping program.

Children in Prep, Grade 1, Grade 2 have a combined after school activity.

Children in Grades 3 & 4 participate in a camp to Cave Hill Creek and beach camp on alternate year.

Children in Grades 5 & 6 participate in a camp at Alpine Ash Mountain Retreat in the Yarra Valley and travel to Canberra on the alternate year

The aim of the Camping Program is to develop independence and social skills and to extend classroom experience by visiting places related to studies. Please note that there is a breakdown of all planned costs that will be sent home at the commencement of Term 1. Payment options are available.


Prior to any class/ school excursion when children are taken away from the vicinity of the school, parental approval needs to be obtained. Ample notification is given, usually in the school newsletter and then in a note specific to the grade / group. Excursions are planned to enhance and supplement classroom programs.
