Sydney Boys High School Year 9 Biloela Bush Camp
Sydney Boys High School
The year 9 camp at Biloela Bush Camp, in the NSW Southern Highlands, builds on the skills and experiences the boys have had through year 7 and 8. The program is designed to physically challenge the students and enhance their individual self-esteem, self-reliance and self-confidence.
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.
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!
Low RopesLow ropes is the perfect warm-up for the day, with fun obsticals promoting communication, teamwork, decision-making and coordination.
