Sapphire Coast Learning Community Creative Arts Camp

The Sapphire Coast Learning Community (SCLC) Creative Arts Camp is a 3-day residential camp for public school students in Years 5 to 8 with an interest in visual and creative arts. Students extend their skills in a setting facilitated by professional artists, artisans and coordinators with the company of like-minded peers.

In its inaugural year, the camp will play a major role in closing the equity gap on the far South Coast by providing access to high-quality workshop opportunities often unavailable in local, isolated communities. 

In 2021, the camp will include workshops in dance, drama, circus art, physical theatre, mural art, woodwork, film making, photography and visual arts.

The operation of this program is contingent on advice provided by the NSW Department of Education in consultation with NSW Health. All activities will adhere to the DoE COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
