Educating students to live and work

At All Saints’ College, outdoor education involves using the outdoors to educate students to live and work together, set goals and co-operate to achieve those goals, while at the same time learning to love, respect and appreciate Australia’s natural environment.  The camp program also links experiences in the outdoors to aspects of the classroom curriculum.

A compulsory camp program is in place for students from Year 7 to Year 10. The program is sequential and provides our students with experiences that become increasingly challenging across the years. The camping skills developed through the program include cooking, sleeping out, navigation and teamwork.  Each camp is held in a different location with the view to providing different but connected outdoor experiences. Full details of each camp, including equipment lists, travel arrangements and camp focus are provided to students ahead of the relevant camp.

Other weekend style activities are organised on a Boarding House basis.  These camps may range from relaxing in the bush to abseiling, water-skiing, canoeing, caving, surfing or cross-country skiing.
