Blue Light Camp
Our programs focus on the health and well-being of young people. As well as our BikeEd focused school camps we run programs that address the needs of vulnerable young people. We provide education, help with crime reduction, life skills coaching, and host cultural, social and sporting programs for young people aged between 5 to 18 years. Our initiatives involve everyone including youth at risk, indigenous, migrant and victims of crime.
The Victorian Blue Light Youth Camp in Maldon, 136km northwest of Melbourne, is set close to the heart of the Maldon Township. Hailing back to 1987, it is a $1.8 million purpose-built to replicate the style of the original Derby Hill Gold Mine on-site. In 1990, the Victorian Government sold the property to Blue Light Victoria to develop into a school camp.
The camp specialises in bicycle safety and programs aimed at young people some of which may identify as being at risk of becoming a victim or perpetrator of a crime. Traditionally, Blue Light Victoria has close links with Victoria Police to create a fantastic environment for youth and the Police to build positive interaction in a fun and relaxed situation. The camp offers a unique opportunity for children to undertake our Bicycle Safety Program while enjoying the history and adventure that the camp and the town offers.
Why go on School Camp?
School camps build confidence, ignite creativity and problem-solving, stimulate a sense of adventure, encourage social interaction and team-building, and promote independence.
All of our camps incorporate one or more activities that will ensure your children or school group will receive these benefits from a coordinated and structured program.
Our camps are interactive and fun and we use a range of activities to show how a great time can be had outdoors being active. School camps are a big part of growing up and we aim to create exciting adventures that will leave lasting memories.
