Year 10

Camp Laurence
The Year 10 camp at Camp Laurence is located on Lake Moogerah, Scenic Rim. It offers the opportunity to push personal boundaries, offering three levels of ease/difficulty and is focussed on educating our students in the outdoors, connecting with nature and with fellow students to achieve personal goals. It aims to inspire students with strength of character and the determination required to thrive in any setting. Students are immersed in nature, camping out for two nights. It builds self-awareness and critical thinking through an expedition-based approach and features activities including hiking, canoeing, navigating and bush-cooking. The ‘Challenge by Choice’ philosophy offers each camper the challenge to do everything: try new activities, care for each other’s safety and support each other.
