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. 

The 2021 camp featured workshops in dance, drama, circus art, Aboriginal art, mural art, woodwork, embroidery, film making, photography and visual arts.

2021 dates

Wednesday 5 May to Friday 7 May  2021
(Term 2 Week 3) 

Applications for the 2022 camp will open in Term 1 2022.
