Camp, retreat and experiential programs are embedded as key learning experiences for students at the College.
A sequential program for students from Years 3 to 11 provides students with intentionally designed experiences in residential and expedition environments. Students, who are provided with challenges that take them beyond their comfort zones, discover new strengths and capabilities through tailored outdoor experiences.
The timing and placement of programs are closely considered so as to address the specific needs of students at each stage of their schooling. Through their experience of new contexts and experiences in the outdoors we consistently see new relationships forged based on shared journeys and expeditions and a greater appreciation for one another. The culminating experience, a 9-day expedition program in the high country of Victoria, is a highlight for students and is well remembered beyond their time at the College.
The College has a long history of providing students with wonderful extended journey programs and students with a keen interest are encouraged to continue their association with the outdoors through the College’s Duke of Edinburgh program, adventure and skill development programs which take place locally and internationally and through outdoor pursuits offered to students in the senior years.
