Camps

Camping is considered to be a valuable part of Rolling Hills Primary School’s program. It is valued as an end in itself as it provides a certain unique set of values and opportunities that justify its inclusion in the curriculum. Camping provides each child with the opportunity to gain knowledge, experience and a sense of achievement through a variety of challenging situations in a non-school setting, while at the same time developing social skills, a sense of responsibility and independence.

Our program is progressive, allowing children to build confidence in their ability to be independent.
