Camps, Incursions & Excursions

At Erasmus, we provide the opportunity for Years 4, 5 and 6 students to experience a creative and diverse Camp program.  These programs provide opportnities for students to develop respect for others, themselves and the environment, self-esteem, leadership, self motivation and an appreciation of the world around them.  

Year 4: Camp Manyung or Camp Howqua

Year 5 & 6: Canberra Experience or Skiing at Mt Hotham

Year 6: Leadership Camp

During the year, classes attend excursions and incursions that introduce different ways of learning and enhance the children’s experiences and knowledge of subjects covered in class.  Examples include Sovereign Hill, Melbourne and Werribee Zoos, Planetarium, Aquarium, Reptile Encounters, Ballet and Opera Australia.  Incursions vary in format and may be interactive presentations by visiting men and women in our community who are accomplished in their chosen field, such as scientists, cultural leaders and performers.

It is our aim to link Incursions and excursions to an area of investigation within the classroom.
