Camps

Euroa Secondary College encourages all students to participate in school camps and excursions, as they provide memorable experiences, enable first-hand learning and provide opportunities for students to become better acquainted. School camps are run for Years 7, 8, 9, 10/11 and 12. Please see below for more information.
