Start planning your school camp

Kids on a school camp

Give your students the ultimate learning challenge and take the curriculum out of the classroom at an Office of Sport, Sport and Recreation Centre. Whether it’s outdoor education, music and band camps, language and study retreats, ski or sailing camps, or anything in between, the Office of Sport delivers quality programs and lessons that last a lifetime.

As a premier outdoor education specialist, the Office of Sport has a range of exclusive programs for primary and secondary students. These are designed to positively impact on student education through fun and rewarding challenges that activate key learning in:

  • Communication
  • Decision making
  • Problem solving
  • Resilience
  • Team building
  • Leadership.

Some are age and subject specific; all can be tailored to meet curriculum outcomes and objectives and help students realise their potential. Students from all over NSW and neighbouring states have benefited from the programs at our 11 Sport and Recreation Centres. Visiting international schools love the distinctly Australian flavour of our camps and their location.

What teachers say

“Your equipment is first class, as are the amenities… but this means nothing if the right people aren’t there to guide and facilitate. You’ve got the best people here. They are ultimately why our kids had such a great time.”
