Applications for Salt Holiday Workshop and Salt LIT Workshop are now CLOSED!

But you’re invited to the Salt Showcase on Saturday night, 27 April! (Read more below.)

Everything you need to know about Salt Holiday Workshop:

Tuesday 23 April – Friday 26 April (Yes, the Holiday Workshop will run on Anzac Day too).

Showcase on Saturday evening, 27 April.


(includes all activities, snacks, lunch)


Please note that if your registration has been confirmed, and you have paid your camp fees by the cut-off date, any cancellations thereafter will result in a $50 cancellation fee. This is to offset the cost of food and resources that will have already been purchased for you at that point.

There is limited space in certain electives, so please have a conversation with your child(ren) about which electives they choose, before you fill in their application form online… Once you’ve submitted their application form, no further changes to electives can be allowed.

Please note: while you may choose your preference for electives, it might work out that you need to do an alternative, due to space constraints.

How it works:

Each applicant selects a total of THREE electives from the lists below (you may only select a maximum of 2 electives from performing electives or a maximum of 2 from arts electives – in other words, 2 from one category plus 1 elective from the other category):

Performing Electives:
• Dance
• Circus (aerials and acro)
• Acting
• Singing

Arts Electives:
• Arts and Crafts
• Set design
• Jewellery making (age 9+ only)
