Camps

At Helena College, each year of the camps programme builds on the academic and personal growth of the student. The underlying focus is developing independence, self-awareness, resilience and teamwork. Almost all camps are fully catered and in dorm style accommodation, with the exception of expedition hikes at the end of Year 9 and in Year 10.
