Camps

Camps offer a great opportunity for students to develop students’ personal and interpersonal skills.

Primary Camps

Primary school camps are held once a year for grade five and six students. They take place at Cottage by the Sea in Queenscliff and are aimed at developing students’ confidence, self-esteem, resilience and independence as well as the ability to work and problem solve with others. These camps give students an experience of being away from home in a safe and supportive environment.

The accommodation is dormitory-style with separate bedroom and bathroom facilities for boys and girls. Each camp runs for three or four days and has a variety of activities. These can include:

  • Surfing
  • Swimming
  • Beach walks
  • Bushwalking
  • Night walks

Students may also visit local sites, including the:

  • Marine Freshwater Discovery Centre
  • Barwon heads
  • Portarlington
  • Queenscliff Wharf

Secondary Camps

Students have the opportunity to go to Camp Doxa. Camps are held once a term in Malmsbury. These camps afford students many benefits including building confidence, teamwork, independence, resilience, social skills and decision-making skills. They also provide students with an opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and experience new things in a safe and nurturing environment.

Students stay in cabins and participate in a variety of activities, such as:

  • Archery
  • Box-building challenge
  • Bushwalking
  • Concert night
  • Cooking and cleaning
  • Giant swing
  • Ropes obstacle course
  • Soccer
