Yarra Valley Grammar Year 8 Camp
Yarra Valley Grammar
The Year Eight program encapsulates the Year 8 motto of “being positive and resilient”. Students will undertake a journey, participating in a number of activities along the way. These activities will challenge them and their ability to work effectively as part of a team. The week also offers Tutors an opportunity to connect with their students outside of the traditional classrooms while allowing students to solidify their skills prior to continuing their outdoor education journey in Year 9.
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!
