Year 7 Camp Jungai
St Catherine's School
Nestled in the Rubicon Valley two hours northeast of Melbourne is Camp Jungai, which means ‘meeting place’ in the Taungurung language. The land has great cultural and historical significance to the Aboriginal people, and as more people visit Jungai, it becomes significant to others as well.
This program will see students spend five days at Camp Jungai, two nights in cabins and two nights in tents or tarps. Groups will be made of up to 14 students and will be accompanied by an OEG group leader and St Catherine’s staff member for the entire program. Meals will be a combination of Camp Jungai Dining Hall and student prepared supervised by their staff.
BushwalkingBe it a day's hike or a short walk to camp, bushwalking engages all our senses allowing us to explore nature and our place within it. And we always find something exciting along the way!
CampingCamping out in tents is our speciality! We love telling stories around the campfire, looking up at the night sky and creating memories that will last a lifetime!
CanoeingFollowing the flow of the river, we love to explore the waterways on our canoes. Working as a team, using our muscles and problem-solving together to reach our base for the night.
High RopesOur high ropes course delivers an exciting challenge with students setting their own goals and developing confidence, determination and decision-making skills.
InitiativesOur many initiatives can be large or small group activities on the land or water, encouraging social connection, negotiation, problem-solving and adaptability, all while having fun!
Raft BuildingWorking together, students design and build a raft out of available materials then test it out on the water, raft building is loved by students of all ages.
