Melbourne Camp

Camp Blue Melbourne is a day camp program for children in Prep to Year 8, located on the grounds of St Mary’s College in St Kilda East.

With access to exceptional onsite facilities and the vast green space of adjacent Alma Park, we have a broad range of activities to suit the various curiosities and interests of our campers every school holidays.

Camp Blue Melbourne isn’t just vacation care — it’s a collection of experiences that children will carry with them forever. Whether it’s playing sports, creating art, performing or making new friends, Camp Blue is where adventure and fun unite!

What we do

Some activity periods each day are scheduled for campers to enjoy with their Hub (age group). This enables each camper to learn and build on new skills across an assortment of activities while enhancing their social connections and providing a consistent support network. There are also periods each day where campers can choose their activity, based on their individual curiosities and interests.

All campers are supported, encouraged and cared for in a safe and happy environment run by enthusiastic and highly skilled staff members. Our team embodies the positive spirit and sense of community that Camp Blue is known for, and we strive to send our campers home at the end of every day feeling happy, connected and accomplished.
