Camps

From Year 6 to Year 12 Heights College boasts an annual camping program with set goals and objectives which the teachers aim to achieve. This program aims to develop all aspects of every child – body, mind and spirit. The program fits in with each year level’s curriculum and provides an opportunity for the teacher to develop aspects of the class program in an alternative environment to the classroom. Rapport is also developed between staff and students on these camps.
