Camping Program

Learning outside of the classroom

Camping is an opportunity for students to learn and interact with their teachers and their peers outside of the classroom environment. The secondary camps at Trinity support the personal development of our students and incorporate personal challenge, teamwork and leadership activities. Each secondary year level has a week long camp each year. The cost of all school camps and excursions are included in the fee schedule and this ensures maximum participation by students.

Year 7 – Victor Harbor

Year 7 students head off at the start of the year for a week-long aquatics camp at Victor Harbor, swapping iPads, books and classes for wetsuits, surf and sand.  During the week students participate in lifesaving activities, boogie boarding, synchronised kayaking, windsurfing, sailing and snorkelling. They have a break from the water and travel to various other local sites for activities such as archery, mini golf and rock climbing.

Year 9 – Sydney

Year 9 students embark on a journey to central Sydney.  The camp will make Australian culture come alive as students explore the history, geography, multicultural society and the arts environs that Sydney presents.  Activities that the students may engage in include a ferry trip to Parramatta, exploring The Rocks, Circular Quay and Darling Harbour precinct, visiting the Sydney Opera House and hopefully attending a performance and generally having a taste of big city culture.
