Camp Eildon & Wanggai Bush Camp

Toorak College

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

As a result of the impact of COVID-19, the Year 8 outdoor programs needed to be adjusted to ensure the students are able to attend an outdoor experience. Therefore, the students will be attending OEG’s Camp Eildon and Wanggai Bush Camp, where they will find themselves bushwalking, cycling and camping in the Eildon Region. Our campsite at Wanggai is set amongst beautiful tea-tree scrub with creeks and streams trickling throughout. Students will alternate between doing initiative activities, high ropes and cycling in this area, as well as activities at Camp Eildon.
