Year 12 Retreat

Year 12 Retreat has a very different focus and in every sense of the word is truly a retreat. It takes place before the academic year begins and focusses on the year ahead. Year 12 is a short and heavily academic focused year. Through this camp, students begin the year with clear goals and strategies for the year ahead.

Year 7 - 10 Camps

Year 7 Adventure Camp is held in Helidon at Emu Gully. The camping program utilises activities based on a wide range of military campaigns from World War Two through to current conflict. Students camp in provided dome tents and learn about survival skills in the bush.

Year 8 students spend four days at the Gold Coast Recreational Centre on the doorstep of beautiful Tallebudgera Beach. Students, ably led by staff, take part in abseiling, archery, bouldering, canoeing and many more activities where students can develop their leadership skills via a safe challenge by choice environment.

Year 9 Expedition is a five day wilderness camp. This adventure camp for students starts with a series of theory and practical lessons to prepare them for life in the field.

The Year 10 Camp forms part of the Gateway Program and takes the students away from a bush environment to an urban one. Students plan and budget the entire camp program and are responsible for all decisions from transport, accommodation, location and costs to the day-to-day navigation around Brisbane.

Year 2 - 5 Camps

Much is gained by students through their exposure to learning opportunities beyond the school environment. At Toowoomba Anglican School, we look to enhance the learning by seeing it brought to life in a wide variety of contexts. One of these contexts is our Outdoor Education program. Class camps begin in Year 2 with an overnight camp on Bogunda Oval. Our Year 3 students travel to Murphy’s Creek Escape for a 2 night adventure camp, whilst our Year 4 students travel to Lake Perseverance to participate in a 3 night team building experience. Our Year 5 students enjoy 4 nights at Tallebudgerra Beach Camp where beach and water safety, adventure and team building are the aims. Our class camps are a highlight on the calendar for each year level.
