da Vinci Decathlon Holiday Camp

Our da Vinci Decathlon School Holiday Camp is designed to engage and inspire young, inquisitive minds during the September/October school holidays.

The event will be hosted at CSU providing students the opportunity to engage with a tertiary education environment. The course content will be based on the NSW da Vinci Decathlon academic competition, and delivered by the Central West Leadership Academy.
