Crusoe College provides students with a wide range of opportunities to be involved in college camps. All students are encouraged to participate, however it is not compulsory.

Year 7 Camp

The Year 7 Camp is held at the start of the college year and is a fantastic opportunity for students to meet with their teachers and make new friends. The camp will be run at Camp Billabong near Echuca, and a wide variety of adventure activities are available for the students to participate in. These include: high ropes course; giant swing; flying fox; archery; geo-caching; yabbying; canoeing and mountain biking. As well as during the day, students engage in great evening activities including a movie night and a “Minute to Win It” style competition. It is a great camp to begin their education at Crusoe College.

Year 8 Camp

The Year 8 Camp is nestled amongst the picturesque Howqua Valley in the high country near Mansfield. It is a highly successful camp enjoyed by all Bendigo schools, one that fosters teamwork and leadership skills. Dubbed “Camp Survivor” Camp Howqua offers many challenging team building activities as well as horse riding, archery, giant waterslide (The Wedginator!), rafting, flying fox, high ropes and a Tough Mudder course. Night activities include a disco coordinated by the students, nature walks and Survivor challenge activities. The camp is open exclusively to Crusoe and provides private ensuited cabins with well-equipped indoor recreational facilities and sportsgrounds. Camp Howqua is a fantastic opportunity for our Year 8’s to try new adventures, challenge themselves and develop new friendships.

Year 9 Camp

Year 9 students have the opportunity to travel to Melbourne for an Urban Camp Experience. Students visit a range of venues whilst learning how to get around Melbourne on foot and by public transport. A highlight of the camp is a visit to the Queen Victorian Market for delicious food.

Year 10 Camp

Ski Camp
The ski camp is held in August each year and Year 10 students and teachers travel to Mount Hotham for 3 days of skiing / snowboarding lessons. Students learn how to ski each morning with a 2 hour lesson, and then have the remainder of the day to practise their newly acquired skills on the mountain. It is a great camp for students to learn a new sport they will be able to engage in for the rest of their lives.
