This years camp theme is:
Join the Professors for 2 days of fun and exciting activities based on J K Rowling's Harry Potter Series. We will have a wide range of activities, workshops, games and exploration time.
Classes may include potions, transfiguration, herbology and more. Activities will require your creative, imaginative, scientific and problem solving skills. Extensive knowledge of the books not essential. Novice and highly experienced Hogwart’s students all welcome.
Even if you have attended one of our Harry Potter camps before, while the sorting into houses will still happen, we will have different workshops for the weekend. Return students are very welcome.
For the past 25 years we have been co-ordinating weekend camps for gifted children aged 6-14. The camps provide opportunities for gifted children to participate in a variety of workshops, and to spend time socialising with like-minded peers. Parents are also welcome and encouraged to attend.

The strength of the camps has always been the children themselves. Giving gifted children the opportunity to spend time with like minded peers engaged in interesting or challenging activities and social experiences is vital for their wellbeing.
"If gifted and talented students are to achieve their potential, they require expanded educational opportunities beyond the scope of the regular school program. The students need to explore different career options, crafts, ideas and skills that challenge their abilities. Our children need personal attention, adult commitment, role models they can admire and talk to."(Hegeman, 1987, p123)
The camp aims to address some of these needs within a fun supportive environment.
The hands-on open ended style of activities are well suited to all children with bright enquiring minds including those who are active, visual spatial and for whom standard classroom activities often don't suit.
Facilitators: Helen Dudeney MEd (COGE) and Lyndal Reid
