Girls' Activities (Years 5 to 8)


Heathgrove's Club for girls include extracurricular activities for school-age girls from Year 5 to Year 8. These programs are run by volunteers (university students and young professional women) who also serve as role models and mentors. Activities are held fortnightly on a Saturday afternoon (3-6 pm). A four day summer camp is also offered to complement these activities.


SUMMER CAMP 2019

The Heathgrove 2019 camp will be held at Log Cabin Camp, (270 Ascot Road, Creswick VIC 3363) from Thursday 17 to Sunday 20 January 2019. Girls in years 5, 6, and 7 are able to apply (2019 school year). The theme of the camp is "survival" and includes outdoor activities, team building exercises and more. The activities aim to help the girls develop three main virtues: resilience, optimism and service.

Fees

At Heathgrove, we try hard to make our activities and camps affordable. Everything is run on a not-for-profit basis. As well as this, Heathgrove itself is a charitable organisation (Heathgrove Study Centre Building Fund) and a registered Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). However, there are still many expenses associated with running the Club activities, and these expenses are covered by the activity fees.
