Camp Blue Manly
Camp Blue Manly is a day camp located on the grounds of Stella Maris College (Benedict Campus) on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Combining the incredible facilities of Stella Maris with nearby Keirle Park, Lagoon Reserve and the iconic Manly Beach, our Camp Blue school holidays programs are 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 in Years 1-9 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.
By scheduling activities based on each camper’s individual preferences, they are more likely to enjoy and engage in the activities they participate in, leading to a more positive overall camp experience. 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.
Additionally, individual scheduling allows for a more personalised approach to learning and development, as our team of staff can tailor activities to each camper’s specific needs and interests. This helps to promote a sense of autonomy and independence, which can have long-term benefits for a camper’s personal growth and development.
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.
So no matter where you are in Sydney, if you are searching for exceptional vacation care centres or school holiday programs in Sydney for your children, our Camp Blue Manly program on the Northern Beaches is the best option around!
