MindCamp’s Gifted & Talented weekend enrichment program provides engaging two day courses designed to meet the unique intellectual and social needs of high-ability students. Students in Years 1-6 have an opportunity to enrol in challenging, fast paced courses specifically designed to allow them to become immersed in their area of interest.

Mind camp is a very special place for kids, which is fun. It was fun for me as I got to do “amazing stuff” such as science experiments that I would not normally do in class. It was also cool as you get to make new friends and hang out with them. Mind Camp was awesome!Rhys (Year 5)
Our kids loved the Mindcamp weekend course. The instructors they had were amazing – so engaging and enthusiastic. The sharing time with parents at the end of the course was very special and it was fantastic to see their pride and confidence in what they had achieved.Michelle (Parent)
There’s a wide range of courses for all ages. I did Digital Filmmaking and I really enjoyed it. It was fun and interactive and I would definitely recommend it!Daniel (Year 3)
