Camps at Kambrya College offer students experiential learning and the opportunity to collaborate and acquire new skills.
We offer various trips to Central Australia, Tasmania, Outdoor Education Camps, Student Leadership Camp, Year 7 Forest Edge and Year 12 Study Camp at Somers. All of these experiences see students stretch themselves socially, physically and mentally by meeting new people, trying new things such as public speaking on Student Leadership Camp, the high ropes course or flying fox at Forest Edge or challenging learning at Study Camp in Year 12; all whilst getting to experience the great outdoors.
Camps at Kambrya College are an integral part of the school program and all students are encouraged to actively participate in the camps program.
Year 7 Camp (Forest Edge)
A compulsory camp for Year 7 students, they will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of valuable learning experiences at Forest Edge in Neerim East over a four day period. All students will have the opportunity to further develop relationships that they have forged with their peers and teachers during the first half of the year. This camp promotes the development of social skills in a setting that puts learning into context.
Year 8 Camp (Tasmania)
Our Year 8 students are fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to the Apple Isle – Tasmania. The five-day camp sees students fly to Hobart, staying at various locations throughout the trip.
