Winter camp

Winter Camp 2020 went virtual!

We were extremely excited to have prospective students join us for a series of interactive online workshops, empowering cultural sessions, yarns with inspiring keynote speakers and competitions for a range of prizes. Events included online art workshops with materials found at home, faculty information sessions and interactive cultural discussions.

A highlight of the 2020 Winter Camp was a session on the importance of storytelling, with special guests, BricKy B, DRMNGNOW and Dani Sib.

We were extremely grateful to our attendees for embracing 2020's unusual circumstances. We couldn’t have done this without each and every one of you, and we can't wait to see familiar faces, and new ones at next year's camp.

Winter Camp aims to provide Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students from Year 10–12 with an in-depth insight into university life, while focusing on team-building, motivation, meeting new people, culture, confidence building and health and well-being.

During the camp, students have the opportunity to experience the following:

  • Stories, advice and mentoring from our current students
  • Cultural activities
  • Speeches from community leaders and other inspiring people
  • Careers and course advice
  • Student support advice
  • Hands-on activities
  • Question and answer panel with staff and students

Please note that students must be 16 years old at the time of the camp.
