High School Camps

In our experience, we have found that high school camps can vary in their aims – year 7 camps generally tend to focus on peer bonding and the development of communication skills and trust – while older age groups often have more of a focus on outdoor education focus. Gumleaves offers the facilities, activities and physical location to accommodate a range of camp outcomes and will present students with a range of outdoor activities and challenges designed to promote personal and social development. During a school camp at Gumleaves, high school students can enjoy a range of fun and rewarding activities with opportunities:

  • For peer bonding among students from different primary schools.
  • For teacher/student bonding.
  • To develop trust and effective communication between teachers and students.
  • For teamwork, communication and collaboration among students.
  • To challenge students and extend their boundaries outside limiting mindsets.
  • To give students an introduction to, and appreciation of, the Australian bush, waterways, flora and fauna.
  • For students to experience a range of adventure activities in a safe yet challenging environment.
  • To understand that physical exertion can be fun.
  • To encourage an interest in physical fitness as a means of overcoming obesity trends.
  • To enhance students' confidence and self esteem.
