During their six-year journey at Catherine McAuley College, students will attend a variety of camps and retreats. In addition to the whole year level activities, there are many opportunities to attend camps in areas ranging from social justice to politics, arts and outdoor education.
Getting to know fellow students and staff in their year level is the focus of Year 7 Camp. Taking part in a fun range of camp activities early in Term 1 is the ideal way to make new friends and start to feel ‘at home’ in their year level.
Year 8 students always look forward to the Anglesea Camp where they participate in a wide range of activities, with surfing always a highlight!
The life-changing five-day Outdoor Education experience for Year 9 students is a highlight of College life, with the memories treasured well beyond graduation.
Year 10 students travel to Melbourne for a 2-night Urban Camp, learning their way around and enjoying a range of cultural and vocational activities.
For Year 11 students, the camp is focused on challenges, resilience and peer dynamics.
In their final year of schooling, Year 12s experience a 3-day faith-based retreat early in the year. It gives students time for reflection away from regular school life, challenges them to create ongoing, positive change in themselves. their community and globally and strengthens relationships with fellow students and staff.
