Camps

Grade 4: Camping Program


We hold two adventure camps for our children. In grade 4 we take the children for a 2 night 3 day stay away from home to an accredited camp site. The children stay in comfortable accommodation. The activities are designed to develop confidence and encourage team work. They range from climbing boulder walls, building huts, archery, flying fox and ropes courses.


Grade 6: Camping Program

In grade 6 we take the children to an accredited adventure camp site for a 4 night,  5 day stay. The children are housed in very comfortable accommodation with a separate dining room and games room. The activities are designed to develop confidence and encourage team participation. They range from flying fox, high ropes, low ropes, building a raft, team rescue, canoeing to archery and of course the camp concert. This year's camp for Grade 6 will be from August 25th to August 29th.

The Camps are also a great way for the children to develop some resilience in being away from mum
and dad but in a secure and warm environment with their teachers and fellow pupils.
