Bayplay Marine Education School Camp

The Bayplay School Camp focus is on educating students on the bay, the marine life and the history of the area using reference material, maps and instructor/guide knowledge, plus our own in house Marine Education Handbook. All programs can be linked to VELS!

The Diving, Snorkeling and Sea Kayaking experience is about empowering students with knowledge about the conditions and natural environment in which they are going to experience. 
Presentations of the unique flora and fauna are linked to the tours so that students can associate them with the flora and fauna they encounter when diving, snorkeling or kayaking. 
The tours are used as a vehicle to learn from.

Activity Goals

During the course of the activities, we seek to achieve the following outcomes:

  • To learn about the plants and animals within different ecosystems
  • To understand the components and factors that affect how ecosystems function
  • To learn about the ways humans affect the surrounding environment
  • To become informed and involved members of the community
  • To engage in positive learning and social experience beyond the classroom
  • To have fun! 

Tailor Made

Programs can be tailor made to suit your budget and objectives. 
Bayplay offers a 30 bed lodge so overnight camps are optional or day tours either in Melbourne locations or on the Mornington Peninsula. If you have your own preferred campsite, Bayplay can run tailored day tour programs from your camp.
