Who is eligible?
Please be aware that the Centre for Youth Literature strives to accommodate students who represent a diverse range of schools and prioritises those students with fewer opportunities to access programs such as these.
Participants need to make their own way to the State Library. If you need assistance, we can send you a MYKI card with preloaded credit to use to travel to and from Story Camp.
Even if you don’t need a MYKI card, you’ll need to let us know whether you’ll be picked up by a parent/guardian, or if you’re going to leave independently at the end of each day.
We will provide lunch. If you have any dietary requirements, please include them on the participation form.
Want to join a Story Camp?
Please ask your parent/guardian to fill in the Expression of Interest (EOI) form below to let us know that you would like to attend.
We’ll be in touch in June to let you know whether we can offer you a place at the July Story Camp and how to register. For more information, contact the Library’s Centre for Youth Literature team on 03 8664 7014.
Story Camp is presented by the Centre for Youth Literature at State Library Victoria, and supported by the Crown Resorts Foundation and Packer Family Foundation.
