Year 9 Biloela

St Patrick's College Campbelltown

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

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 9 will experience a broad range of challenging, hands-on experiences. They will develop social and leadership skills, build teamwork and develop friendships. They will be immersed in the natural beauty of Biloela Bush Camp in the Southern Highlands. All the while having fun and embedding memories for a lifetime.
