Year 10 Camp

Yr 10 Camp is an Outdoor Education camp set around the Mt Barney region. Students hike for three days over mountains carrying all they need to survive for the three days. Persistence and resilience are tested and developed during this time. Students also learn to cook with portable camping stoves using some ingredients from the bush around them. This is a camp where students stretch their boundaries to new heights. Devotional times are special as groups of students build relationships and reflect on the challenges they have overcome together throughout the day. 

Year 11 Camp

The camp has a wonderful and unique atmosphere as students learn to value others and to serve in a Christ-like way. This camp marks the start of the passing on the student leadership responsibilities from the the year 12 students to the year 11 leaders. This camp is full of experiences to empower and encourage students as they come to understand their uniqueness and special qualities instilled in them from God - everyone has a role in leadership. 

Year 12 Camp

This camp takes place in Kingfisher Bay on Fraser Island. The camp can be characterised by the devotional and spiritual times shared together as a grade with the themes of celebration, recreation and environmental education.


In addition to camps, students regularly attend excursions related to their studies.
