Planning a camp or easy as 123

IT’S no secret that teachers are working harder and smarter than ever. Contrary to popular belief, the work is far from over when the last bell rings. After that there are parents to meet, reports to write, after school activities to supervise, lessons to plan, meetings to attend…. the list goes on.

On top of an already precarious work load, teachers are also increasingly being expected to plan and organise school activities, school excursions and school camps. Not just any old excursions or camps, mind…but events that offer new and exciting educational experiences for students. It can be a daunting task.

So where to start to find the "right" school camp / excursion or activity. The Australian Directory of School Activities, Excursions and Accommodation is a printed and online resource that listed a huge range of school activities, school excursions and school camps along with transport options across all states, age groups, curriculum needs, and budgets.

What you’re saying
Like most teachers, South Australian educator Karen Gillespie wants the best for her students. But time is always the biggest sticking point.

“I want my students to learn and grow through new experiences and challenges, but finding suitable activities and excursions can be incredibly time consuming,” she explained. “At the end of the day, after a full day in the classroom, followed by meetings and extra-curricular activities, I’m exhausted!”

She said The Australian Directory of School Activities, Excursions and Accommodation was a welcome addition.

“I love the fact that I can access the Directory online. It saves me precious time and I can quickly navigate my way through the comprehensive listings by selecting the category that best suits the activity I have in mind.”

She said she also welcomed the fact that the Directory was regularly updated to include the latest activities, venues and camps.

“Keeping students engaged and interested in learning gives enormous satisfaction. Long gone are the days where an annual trip to the museum sufficed. Today’s students, teachers, parents and caregivers want educational activities that stimulate, excite and extend students’ learning.”

The online directory which can be found at contains loads of fun, educational and great ideas for your next school activity / school camp or school excursion.
