The Camp Program

  Add to Favourites
Personal growth and development takes place in many ways. Our carefully planned sequential Camp Program embracing Years 7-11, facilitates and encourages self-reliance, teamwork, leadership, initiative and responsibility through the challenges of experiential learning and new adventures. Working as a team member develops an enhanced value of self and others.

A range of individual challenges and opportunities to take measured personal risks are offered to students in a framework of developmentally appropriate ways. The ‘challenge by choice’ and supportive spirit of the Camp Program often sees students achieve personal goals they could not imagine.
