Allocations & Applications

Applications for working with us are now open for the 2023 school year.

  1. Applications open for 2023: 11th July
  2. Calendaring begins: 23rd August
  3. Schools notified for a place in 2023: 16th September (download calendar event)

Attending schools are required to provide staff to meet overnight supervision requirements. In consideration of the requirements around camps within the new VGSA we ask that all applications be supported by the Principal prior to submission.

Applications are considered in line with the DET Outdoor Education Schools Policy:

  • Schools with cohorts of students who would benefit most from attendance and would not ordinarily be able to access such opportunities, including disadvantaged students, Koorie students, vulnerable students, students at key transition points.
  • Schools that have not previously attended, except for where there is an agreement in place for a school to attend over consecutive years (your school would have a formalised Memorandum of Understanding, and in this instance, you do not need to apply again. Contact us if you’re unsure).
  • Schools that demonstrate a commitment to meeting the best practice principles around delivery, including joint planning, strong and clearly identified learning intentions, connections with the visiting school’s curriculum, and reinforcing the learning upon the students’ return to the classroom.

You can place an application here (please ensure when selecting your preference date/s, that you select 2023 dates so that your application is received):
