School Camps

School campsAre you are a school looking to run school camps for leadership, music, drama or sport? Or to get your students away for a variety of activities, Alex Park is the ideal venue for you.

Our meeting facilities and activity spaces suit leadership development programs. Multiple meeting rooms and rehearsal areas are ideal for music and drama camps.

Through strategic alliances with local providers we are able to offer school camps a wide range of Educational, Leadership, Challenge and Recreational activities including;

  • Educational and Activity Providers who cover history, astronomy, coastal and marine, geography, flight and science. These providers all have extensive experience with school groups and align their programs with curriculum needs.
  • Leadership and Challenge Activity Providers who cover a broad range of leadership and challenge activities (though most merge both into exciting programs). They were chosen on the basis of their experience in school and group activities and the professionalism of their programs.
  • Local Attractions, whilst many of these might appear to be simply regional attractions, most embed awareness and educational outcomes and experiences into their activities.

And being in the centre of the Sunshine Coast with its vast array of sporting facilities and regular competitions makes Alex Park a great base for sport camps.

There is opportunity for personal growth as students participate in school organised activities, be challenged by activities provided by our program partners. Or engage in learning opportunities offered by location (beach and rock pools) and services offered by local attractions and organisations (Underwater World, Alex Surf Club and Australia Zoo)

Time away on school camps is important for students to develop relationships with their peers, this time allows them to get to know each other, learn to better relate to each other and support each other in their future. Music groups, drama groups and sports teams  report great benefits from intensive practice and coaching session and the relationships that are built at camp.

All our accommodation and facilities meet the requirements of NARTA accreditation standards
