Student Well-being Program

After a turbulent year for all of us, Camden Park EEC is available to assist you in supporting the well-being of your students as we enter Term 4, with the opportunity to spend a day with us and take part in a selection of fun and engaging activities taken from our various programs. Options include group tent building, Sheep mustering, wagon ride and cattle observation, Stockwhip cracking, Boomerang Science workshop and Boomerang throwing. Students can picnic in their tents overlooking one of the large dams on the property, currently thriving with birdlife, and grab a pair of binoculars for a closer look. Students can even document their day out with an iPad and iMovie if they like. We have plenty of shade, BBQs available if required and complimentary tea and coffee facilities for teachers. Call us to have a chat about how we can assist you and your students.

NEW PROGRAM for Stage 1 and Stage 2 students

We have recently completed a revision and redevelopment of our Community and Remembrance program for Stage 1 and Stage 2 students. This is an engaging learning experience that offers an insight into traditional Aboriginal lifestyles of local Dharawal people, while also delving into the lifestyles of early 19th Century rural settlers.  Details can be found here.

NEW ONLINE RESOURCE

Material World - Stage 1/2 Food and Fibre

We have just completed an online resource to assist with the study of the Material World/Living Things  strand of the Science and Technology syllabus for Stage 1 and 2. This resource is based upon the learning experiences presented during our Food and Fibre - Production program, and can be used as either a pre visit preparation tool or a post visit assessment opportunity. 

UPDATED

Senior Agriculture resources now updated and available to teachers and students to support HSC students undertaking a preliminary Farm Case Study or Farm Product Study.In the absence of a physical visit to the farm, these current and comprehensive resources provide support and an abundance of essential information for students and teachers. Head to the Farm Case Study Resources page to view and download these revised documents.

 

In support of students and teachers during these unprecedented times, the Environmental and Zoo Education Centre network has produced online resources available to both Primary and Secondary students. These sites will be updated with new content regularly, and although no substitute for a physical visit to one of our Centres, will provide you with a range of K-12 content to help you keep students engaged until we can welcome you all back to our unique learning spaces.

Welcome to Camden Park Environmental Education Centre

The centre is located on a 1,600 hectare rural property, known as the Elizabeth Macarthur Agricultural Institute, allowing us to specialise in farm-based, heritage and environmental field work opportunities for Kindergarten to Year 12 students.
