Camps, Outdoor Education and Life Skills
Shoreham - simply stunning!
Mentone Grammar is fortunate to have 3 hectares of beachfront property at Shoreham on Westernport, Mornington Peninsula. A little over an hour from Mentone, the camp is in a private, peaceful bushland setting right on the beautiful Shoreham beach. The facility's buildings include modern bunk room accommodation, a fully equipped commercial kitchen, dining and recreation hall, indoor and outdoor games areas, and classrooms offering an inspirational alternative learning environment.
Students in Years 3-9 attend an annual camp at Shoreham (from a few days for junior students up to a week for older year levels), and senior students are able to make use of the facility from time to time for study retreats.
Shoreham is the ideal place for exploring and learning about the local environment and marine habitat; there are rock pools and sand dunes nearby, and of course there is ample opportunity to enjoy the beach and learn new skills such as sailing, kayaking and surfing.
There are other opportunities for students to learn about independence away from home, and visit new places as part of their learning journey. This includes camps in middle school to places such as Phillip Island and Canberra for Years 5, 6 and 7, and adventure-based camps for Year 8.
