Our camp program provides our students with opportunities to develop and grow through intellectual, physical, social, emotional, moral, spiritual and cultural experiences.  

Our extensive program consists of compulsory year level camps from Year 3 to Year 12 as well as many curriculum or subject based camps such as the Year 11 Biology camp.  

These camps aim to prepare our students to be people of character in different social situations. These situations are well scaffolded and include age-appropriate opportunities for students to practice how to live and work in groups, face challenges with courage and resilience and extend their ability to learn in contexts other than the classroom.   

Current Primary School Camp Program

Year 3 (Term 4)

On their very first school camp the Year 3 students embark on an overnight camp at QCCC Brookfield. This centre-based camp provides the students with an opportunity to engage with groups with various skill-based challenges such as rock climbing, survival skills, circus skills, and orienteering.  

The camp is designed to challenge students in a fun environment while they develop trust and respect with their peers.  

Year 4 – Facing Your Giants (Term 2)

The Year 4 students take part in a two-night camp situated on the beautiful Tallebudgera Creek. Hosted by the Gold Coast Recreation Precinct the students are challenged to face their own giants with the help of their peers and teachers.  

Activities are structured so that each child has an opportunity to support and serve their friends while also taking on personal challenges. Activities in which the students will participate include canoeing, giant swing, team challenges and beach games, rock climbing and orienteering.   

 Year 5 (Term 3)

Lake Somerset provides a stunning backdrop to the Year 5 Camp where the activities are surrounded by leafy bushland and the tranquil lake. Camp Somerset has been hosting the Year 5 camp for many years and their program provides opportunities for students to reflect on what sort of leader they are becoming. 

Each part of this camp has been designed to maximize the participation of every student in large and small groups as well as the opportunity to accept the assistance and encouragement of their peers. Activities include raft building, canoeing, ‘Koala Climb’ (harnessed tree climbing), archery, crate climb, Kokoda Trail (team skills) and some fun in the pool!  

Year 6 – Service (Term 3)

Our biggest camp in Primary School shifts in focus from our previous camps. This ‘Tour’ is a week-long, immersive educational experience in the national capital. At every point, students are challenged by the evidence of the countless servant leaders that have helped to build the country we call home.  

Throughout the week, students will visit major national centers such as Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial, Questacon (National Science Centre), the Royal Australian Mint, Government House, just to name a few. On Snow Day, students get a chance to see the snow and attempt skiing, many for the first time!
