School camps at St Columba are rewarding and enriching experiences for every student. We know that for some children, being away from their families can be challenging and perhaps daunting. However, we trust that you can understand how these experiences are important not only to our curriculum but to the social, physical and emotional development of your child.

The Year 2 Sleep Out program is designed to enhance the development of students’ social and personal skills in addition to achieving educational goals. The camp is designed to prepare students as they advance to the Year 3 compulsory camp program where students will be off-site for two nights the following year. To do so, students will return to school to talk and reflect on their camp experience. Having responsibility for one’s personal care and hygiene, organising clothing and belongings and eating food that has not been prepared at home are all sound learning opportunities. For our younger students, it is the difference of a day’s learning outside the classroom that creates the excitement and challenge. If your child requires additional support, please contact Sarah Jones (Stage 1 Coordinator).

It is an opportunity to make new friendships, build cohesion of the Primary classes and importantly, have heaps of fun. Our providers Great Aussie Bush Camp and Milson Island Sport and Recreation Centre are both excellent and work with our staff to ensure a fantastic experience for our students.
