Year 8 Biloela Bush Camp
Bishop Tyrrell Anglican College
Learn for life, lead for life, serve for life.
We believe nothing prepares students for the real life like the real world. Outdoor Education is more than hard top camps and hikes; it’s teaching kids universal skills that will serve them well for life – wherever it may take them.
Students in Year 8 will experience a journey that allows them to embrace the beauty of the outdoors at Biloela Bush Camp in the NSW Southern Highlands, growing their skills in bushwalking and navigation, canoeing and camping under the stars.
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!
CampingCamping out in tents is our speciality! We love telling stories around the campfire, looking up at the night sky and creating memories that will last a lifetime!
CanoeingFollowing the flow of the river, we love to explore the waterways on our canoes. Working as a team, using our muscles and problem-solving together to reach our base for the night.
InitiativesOur many initiatives can be large or small group activities on the land or water, encouraging social connection, negotiation, problem-solving and adaptability, all while having fun!
OrienteeringThere's nothing more exciting than learning a new skill! Orienteering teaches us to read a map and a compass, gauge distances and provides lots of great learning opportunities.
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.
CyclingA favourite activity among our team, cycling along a windy track together or playing group games builds resilience and independence in young people.
Flying FoxApproximately 2 meters above ground, our flying fox gives the exhilarating sensation of flight while also improving students' balance, coordination and body strength.
