Mount Waverley Secondary College runs a vibrant camps and excursions program, which exposes students to a variety of experiences. These programs are available at each year level at the college and are an integral part of the students’ school experience.

We believe that camps and excursions are a vital part of the broader school experience. Some of the benefits include: developing healthy and positive peer to peer relationships, as well as student / teacher relationships outside of the classroom. Students also develop important life skills such as: independence, communication, getting on with others in challenging circumstances, self-management; to name but a few.
