Camping

Why have camps?

Camps provide the students with the opportunity to:

  • Extend their intellectual and social development in an outside school environment experience socialisation, group cooperation and independence.
  • Take part in challenging activities that require decision-making and self reflection on consequences for both themselves and others.
  • Develop personal qualities such as resourcefulness, leadership, tolerance and determination.

Where do camps take place?

Camps are conducted in Years 6 and 4 during terms 2 and 4. Students in Year 4 attend a 3-day camp to Monbulk’s Log Cabin Ranch where students participate in a range of activities such as yabbying, damper making and bush walks.
