David Armitage visits a student at Nepean Special School on day one of the Saints' 2018 AFL Community Camps.

The Saints' painted the South East red, white and black today as they kicked off their 2018 AFL Community Camps.

Starting on Monday and continuing throughout Tuesday, the camps will see the players visit over 70 schools, football programs and community groups as the club gives back to those who support it the most.

Visits covered the whole St Kilda heartland, ranging from Bayside and Kingston through to Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.

Here's a few highlights from the day, as showcased through our social media. 


The day kicked off with a training session at Peninsular Grammar.


It was a chance for students to see their favourite players in action, while a future generation of fans watched in wonder as they had their first run-in with the famous red, white and black.

As students surrounded the boundary, a spot right on the fence became premium real estate.

As training finished, the Saints' spread far and wide as they split down both sides of the Nepean Highway to begin their visits.
 

Out and about for #aflcommunitycamp @jakecarlisle2 @njbrown22 @stkildafc

It wasn't just visits either, the club staging panels to further educate and engage with the local community.
