Primary School Camps

For many kids, this camp will be their first time away from home. A camp at Gumleaves will give your students the opportunity to learn new skills, engage in challenging activities and develop teamwork competency and a level of independence.  We have a range of self-led activities available, and provide the ideal environment for you to conduct your own program. Since the early 1990s thousands of school children have had both enjoyable and educational experiences at Gumleaves.

Gumleaves offers the facilities, activities and physical location to accommodate a range of camp outcomes and will present students with a range of outdoor activities and challenges designed to promote personal and social development. During a school camp at Gumleaves, primary school students can enjoy a range of fun and rewarding activities with opportunities:

  • For peer bonding among students.
  • For teacher/student bonding.
  • To develop trust and effective communication between teachers and students.
  • For teamwork, communication and collaboration among students.
