The college sees camps, tours and overnight excursions as valuable aspects of the learning process providing students with the opportunity to:
- acquire a wider experience of the world than can be obtained in the normal classroom situation;
- reinforce in an authentic environment studies already undertaken in the classroom;
- develop positive attitudes towards school, fellow-students and teachers;
- develop attitudes of respect, tolerance and co-operation in a group situation where needs, goals and tasks of a different nature to those encountered at home or at school are experienced;
- develop particular skills associated with outdoor living and recreation which may include: first aid, bushcraft, camping, cooking;
- develop and display initiative, responsibility and organisational skills associated with camp programs and activities.
