Camp FAQs

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can I apply for a group of students together?

No, an EOI intake form must be completed for each student applying to attend the camp. This is due to EOI intake form automatically adding information in the database for the camp. At the end of each completed form, you are able to “add another student”.

Are NSW AECG Camps available for non-Aboriginal students?

The camp is for Aboriginal students only due to our funding body agreement, we hope to open it up for all students in the future, as we understand there is a need.

Will there be camps for each stage?

Yes, throughout Term 4 2021 & Term 1 2022 NSW AECG will be delivering Online Camps covering Language and Culture, STEM, SHOW, Mental Health, Wellbeing and Re-engagement back into school. NSW AECG will be advertising all Camps through NSW AECG Regions, Locals, website and social media.
