Getting away from home and school on an annual outdoor education camp is a brilliant way to develop physical, emotional and interpersonal strength and get to know teachers and peers through fun, new experiences.
The Infants Camp in K to 2 prepares children for our dynamic Outdoor Education program which is led by professional outdoor educators accompanied by CCGS teachers.
Annual camps from Year 3 to Year 11 become more adventurous as students mature.
Activities like abseiling, caving, orienteering, cooking, pitching tents, bushwalking, kayaking, and horse riding allow children to step outside their comfort zone to build resilience and independence.
Students experience the wellbeing benefits of being active in the great outdoors and bring back key learning that they can call on throughout their schooling and beyond. They learn how to solve problems with mutual respect through cooperation and communication. They build courage and strength through collaboration, negotiation and reflection on difficult challenges.
