Outdoor Education

Outdoor education provides a range of opportunities that support and facilitate every boy’s personal, spiritual and social development as they progress through College life.

Boys thrive as they participate in a range of camps and retreats as well as optional hikes, bushwalks, road trips, treks and a huge range of other outdoor experiences.
These experiences enhance learning, build relationships and respect, develop leadership and teamwork, as well as resilience as boys overcome fear and adversity as they push outside their comfort zones. Connection with nature also provides a platform for spiritual growth and experience.
