HSC Study Camps

There's more to life than the HSC.

But that doesn't mean you won't study on a Youthworks HSC Study Camp. You'll get at least thirty (30!) hours of quality study time in, free of fridges, internet, TV and all the distractions of home. There'll be plenty of leaders willing and available to help you out on core HSC subjects and, where possible,  other subjects as well.

Besides hitting the books though, HSC Study Camps are packed with a whole lot more fun. You'll meet students from all over the state, as well as leaders who know exactly what you're going through. At our beautiful conference centres in the Royal National Park, Blue Mountains and the Shoalhaven, you'll also have plenty of time to relax and/or enjoy doing outdoor activities- we know how important scheduled rest is! We also spend a session each day in open discussion about Christianity and the significance of Jesus, run by a thought-provoking guest speaker.

"The whole atmosphere encouraged us to study hard."
