Bayplay School Camps in a nutshell

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.

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. Tours run from locations in Melbourne or on the Mornington Peninsula. Bayplay offers a 36 bed lodge for overnight camps. If you have your own preferred campsite, Bayplay can run tailored day tour programs from your camp.
