Outdoor Education

The college takes great care to organise highly enjoyable camps that challenge and extend our students' intellectual, physical and social gifts and capacities.  

Camps are led by college staff, assisted by qualified specialist instructors.  Outdoor education camps for Years 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 are compulsory components of the college's curriculum. Each camp is designed to offer significant learning experiences and team building activities that cannot be offered in the formal school environment.
