Camps and Excursions

Camps and excursions are compulsary and form part of the Curriculum.


Our students participate in camps in Years 5, 6, 7, 9 and 12. We hope to run some kind of overnight experience for our Year 5 and 6 students, which may be a camp or similar. More information will be provided at a later date.


Year 7 students will participate in an orientation camp where they will have the opportunity to strengthen old relationships and make new ones.

In Year 9, students participate in a ‘Challenge Camp’ where they have the opportunity 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 at school and to give thanks and affirm those with whom they have shared their secondary schooling life. This event is one of the most powerful and enjoyable experiences of a student’s time at Xavier College.
