Camp Blue Manly

Camp Blue Manly is a day camp located on the grounds of Stella Maris College. Combining the incredible facilities of Stella Maris with nearby Keirle Park, Lagoon Reserve and the iconic Manly Beach, our Manly Camp Blue program is diverse, unique and never boring!

Each day is comprised of 5 activity periods. Our philosophy is to satisfy each camper’s individual curiosities and interests while providing them with a unique opportunity for growth. Our campers have input on their own individualised weekly schedule, with 4 of their favourite activities selected from their preferences to fill the 4 elective periods. There is also a Hub (age group) activity each day for campers to enjoy with all their peers together.

Our diverse range of elective activities enables campers to gravitate towards their interests, with the intended outcome not limited to just learning, but also meeting, connecting and developing strong bonds with other like-minded peers. There is no doubt that having common interests is one of the best ways to enhance strong social connections!

Campers enrolled in Kindergarten are part of our Little Blue program, which takes the decision making out of the way and provides them with a well-balanced program they can enjoy with new friends while never getting bored.

To help those families from further afield, we also offer a private return bus service from North Sydney to Camp Blue Manly each day. This service can be selected at the time of application, with availability subject to bus capacity.
