Some great news for Victorian Outdoor Ed. Hopefully other states will replicate this initiative!I reckon every single one of us has a fond memory of going on school camp.Whether you were the kid who bounded onto the bus without a goodbye or had to be pried away from mum and dad – you'd always come home exhausted and having had a great time.Missing out on them over the last couple of years has been really tough - but now it's time to get them back in full swing.Which is why we're going to book every school camp we can get our hands on to make it happen. It means that 80,000 Victorian kids will be heading to school camps - absolutely free of charge. And there's more - 325,000 students will be able to take part in sport and cultural experiences run by the likes of Sovereign Hill, NGV, Zoos Victoria and the AFL at absolutely no cost.Camps will be three days for primary schools and five for secondary, and they'll be getting underway over the summer break for the schools that have been most affected by closures. So check the gear list, grab your sleeping bag and favourite pillow.And don't forget to give mum a kiss goodbye. ... See MoreSee Less
