Camps and excursions

Our students participate in camps in Years 8 and 9. Each of these camps is completely different but all serve to provide students with opportunities for fun and friendship.

Year 8 students go on an orientation camp where they get the opportunity to strengthen old relationships and make new ones as they gather from upwards of 15 primary schools to make-up our Year 8 group.

In Year 9 our ‘Challenge Camp’ is held where students get to work collaboratively and challenge themselves in a range of situations that they would not normally be placed in.

The Year 12 Retreat is a time for our students to reflect on themselves as individuals, the relationships they have formed and to give thanks and affirm those with whom they have shared their secondary life. This event is one of the most powerful and enjoyable experiences of a students’ time at Xavier College.
