How do I make a Positive Start booking?
To access the funded camp places provided by the Victorian Government Positive Start program please enter the code emailed to you by the Positive Start administrators.
What information do I need to provide when I book?
When you book your child's place on camp we will request contact, school, medical, dietary and other details. This ensures we can best care for your child.
What do I bring on camp?
When you book we will send you a booking confirmation by email. It includes a packing list (including what not to bring) on camp.
Camp is tech free. Campers are required to leave their phone at home. We get kids off the couch, outdoors having fun activating minds and bodies.
Can I request to share a room with a sibling/friend?
Campers share activity groups and cabins for sleeping with children of a similar age. Room for sleeping are also arranged by gender. You can make requests to share activity groups / rooms with siblings/friends on camp when booking. We will do our best to accommodate these requests. Generally requests to share room or activity group where campers are more than 1 year apart in age are often difficult to accommodate.
What are arrival and departure times?
Arrival: Please arrive for registration between 10.30-11.15am. A Welcome and Opening Ceremony will be held at 11.30am.
Departure: A Farewell and Closing Ceremony will be held at 11.30am, followed by light lunch with final departure by 1pm.
Parents/carers are welcome to attend the Opening/Closing Ceremonies.
Transport from and to Melbourne
Need transport to camp? Cave Hill Creek provides accompanied return transport to camp from Southern Cross. If you would like your child to use this service it is essential to pre-book with us. Tickets are $70pp (fully funded for Positive Start). Please meet at Southern Cross station bus terminal at 7.45am prior to departure, and 4pm for return.
Children with Special Needs
Cave Hill Creek is an inclusive and friendly camp. We want every child on camp to feel happy and safe. If your child has special needs please let us know before making a booking. Our staff do not have specialised skills to care for campers requiring additional care. To ensure the safety of your child, other campers and our staff, if your child is unable to participate in camp as a member of a group, or needs individual supervision, then unfortunately this camp unlikely to be appropriate for them. As an example, if your child requires an aide of any description to attend school, or has a behavioural support plan, this is something we would want to discuss before accepting a booking.
