Victorian Blue Light Youth Camp is located in Maldon 136km northwest of Melbourne. The property is set close to the centre of the Maldon Township, it was built in 1987 at a cost of $1.8 million, being designed to replicate the style of the original Derby Hill Gold Mine, located at the site. In 1990 the property was acquired from the Victorian Government by Blue Light Victoria and developed as a school camp.
Since this time the camp has run school camps which specialise in bicycle safety and more recently have introduced programs targeting young people who have been identified as being at risk of becoming a victim or perpetrator of crime. Blue Light Victoria traditionally has close links with Victoria Police and it is a fantastic opportunity to provide a fun and relaxed environment to build positive relationships between young people and police.
The camp offers the unique opportunity for children to undertake our Bicycle Safety Program whilst enjoying the history and adventure that the camp and the town offers.
Camps can be tailored to suit your school with a large variety of activities on offer at camp, or many other activities at our doorstep.
The camp and in particular the unique setting of Maldon offer other user groups the opportunity to experience what the camp and the surrounding environment offers. If you are one of these type groups or a similar group, please contact on what the camp and environment may be able to offer:
