Year 9 Odyssey
Aquinas College WA
In an increasingly complex, dispersed, and fast-paced world, this camp offers students an opportunity to seek formal affirmation of advancing maturity and initiation into adulthood. Through structured, goal-oriented activities taught and supervised by authority figures and role models, students will benefit from communal observance of achievement in a small group setting.
AbseilingDescending a rock face or a climbing tower, we love the views from the top and the courage we see as students aim for their personal best and encourage one another.
BushwalkingBe it a day's hike or a short walk to camp, bushwalking engages all our senses allowing us to explore nature and our place within it. And we always find something exciting along the way!
