ACA Partners with the Victorian Government to Deliver the Positive Start in 2022 Initiative
Positive Start in 2022 (Positive Start) is a Victorian Government initiative to re-engage primary and secondary aged students from government and low-fee non-government schools whose learning has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Positive Start aims to promote student physical and emotional health and wellbeing, with the objective to enable more than 80,000 students to experience a school or holiday camp, perhaps for the first time.
Australian Camps Association (ACA) is working with the Victorian Government to enable the delivery of Positive Start.

We've had some wonderful feedback below:
"This experience (at camp) was exceptional to say the least. Both students and parents have expressed their sincere thanks for giving their children such a valuable opportunity." - Mrs Betts, Holy Spirit School.
"A final note to say an enormous thank you to you and the team for giving our students the experience of a lifetime last week. From all accounts the kids have reported having an absolute ball, and we have already heard from parents how happy they were when they arrived home. Of course the highlights came from their time in the surf – we were blown away by some of the students who attempted, and succeeded, in learning how to stand up on a surf board! But more importantly, the engagement from 100% of students when it came to giving it a go was incredible and a credit to the way you guys supported the kids." - Lesa, Teacher, Newington Primary School
"I just wanted to express our extreme gratitude to have experienced such a wonderful camp. To be able to attend such a camp and for it to be fully subsidised is just amazing. Our kids came home this afternoon utterly exhausted, but also buzzing from one of the best camps we have ever been on". - Travis, Teacher, Crib Point Primary
