Year 9 - Camp Wombaroo
Sydney Boys High School
The year 9 camp builds on the skills and experiences the boys have had through year 7 and 8. The program has two distinct outlines – a 3-day camp out incorporating a bush walk to the summit of Mt Jellore, and a 3-day activity based program. Both are designed to physically challenge the students and enhance their individual self-esteem, self-reliance and self-confidence.
