Transitions is a 3-day creative arts camp structured around the theme of ‘transitions’ supporting students from small schools across South and South West NSW to explore and express their hopes and fears about their forthcoming transitions into high school through an integrated performing arts program.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in art forms including but not limited to: dance, drama, physical theatre/circus art, filmmaking, Aboriginal arts, visual arts and creative crafts.

The program will be delivered by specialist performing arts educators, engaging and encouraging students’ creative self-expression, and will culminate in a final performance for teachers, friends and families on the final evening of the camp.

We have a fun, challenging and action-packed program of creative pursuits to engage the student in the arts and look forward to igniting their creative spark and seeing what they can achieve.


The 2022 Transitions camp was held from Wednesday 8 to Friday 10 June 2022 (Term 2 Week 7) at Warrumbui Retreat and Conference Centre, Murrumbateman.
