What is Camp With Wings? 

Camp With Wings (or CWW for short) is a camp for home educated teenagers that takes place in January each year.  Its goal is to create a place for teens to connect with their peers, learn some independence and grow as people.  Also, to have a lot of fun and make a lot of new awesome friends.

Who is it for?

Camp is aimed at unschooled/home educated teens aged 13 – 17 years.  This includes teens who are schooling part time, studying via distance education or at TAFE.

Can I still come if I don’t homeschool?

If you are not currently home schooling but are considering it, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

When does it take place?

Camp takes place for one week in mid January every year.  The next camp will be held from 14th to 21st January 2018.

Where does it take place?

In 2018 CWW will be held at Cataract Scout Park in Appin, NSW (1 hour south of Sydney)

What happens at camp?

Loads of awesome stuff. We have a schedule of daily activities from breakfast till late. The best part is most of it is not mandatory which means you are free to choose from activities that suit you, not someone’s idea of what you must do (this is a home school camp, after all).  Most of the day’s activities are made up of camper-led workshops, but there is also relaxation time (for chilling and hanging out), spontaneous time (for spontaneous fun stuff) and evening activities (talent shows, game nights, The Camp Ball, camp fires and more). In short, there is plenty to choose from each day so that you get the best experience out of camp.

Some of the amazing workshops from the past have included singing, dancing, soccer, frisbee, journaling, guitar, music, drumming, belly dancing, ballroom dancing, yoga, chess, tennis, tie-dyeing, unicycling, face painting, balloon animals, stilt making, French, Japanese, knitting, ‘life hacks’, puppetry, juggling, magic, story telling, card games, photography, computer programming, henna tattoos, plaster masks and many more.

Why should I come?

Because it’s going to be amazing. I know it might sound too good to be true… but seriously. Camp can change your life, broaden your horizons and help you make some amazing friends that you’ll keep for years. Don’t believe me? Check out the testimonials page and you’ll see what I mean.
