Camping Program

All grades from Year 3 to Year 12 attend an annual camp. Camps create the perfect balance of challenge and fun where students collaborate to discover hidden strengths and build resilience. At the same time, students develop perseverance, responsibility, confidence, positive attitudes, and interdependence.

In all the camp settings, there are three underlying purposes:

  1. To allow for reflection on the student’s relationship with God
  2. To enhance teacher-student relationships in an informal setting
  3. To widen the breadth of wholesome leisure pursuits.

As an introduction to the camping program, the one night sleepover at the College provides a "camp" atmosphere as an introduction to school camping.
