An integral part of the core curriculum, the Outdoor Education programme provides boys with fun and engaging activities in country Victoria.
In Year 7, boys spend a week at the Robert Knox Camp, situated on the edge of the Wombat State Forest in the Central Highlands of Victoria. At this exceptionally popular camp, students sleep in bunk-style cabins and in tents in the bush. They learn to orienteer with map and compasses; take part in mountain biking, bush walking, rock climbing and abseiling; cook on campfires; pitch their own camp tents and more – all of which contribute to independence, teamwork, organisation, leadership and an appreciation of the Australian bush.
In Year 8, boys spend a week at Camp Dowd, the school site located near Paynesville in the Gippsland Lakes region. The boys are involved in a journey activity incorporating sea kayaking, hiking and mountain bike riding. While on their journey, boys prepare and cook their own meals and sleep in tents.
