At Park Lake State School we believe that our camping program is an
integral component in the development of all children in the areas of
self-discipline, self-motivation, organisational skills, independence, group
cooperation, social skills, personal hygiene, self-confidence and a range of
academic skills dependent upon the venue.
Year Four children are involved in a camp during term
two or three based on environmental studies and attend Tallebudgera Farm
School (2 nights, 3 days). This camp
assists children to be self-disciplined and organised.
Year Five and Year Six children have a camp each year. Year Five
attend Tyalgum (2 nights, 3 days) and Year Six attend Lake Ainsworth OEC (2 nights, 3 days).
We see this camp as an important unifier for the older grades and aim to
develop group cohesiveness and understanding of the individual needs of others.
In 2020, all camps have been cancelled due to Government Restrictions.
