Helena Camps enrich learning

Some of the most challenging and rewarding experiences Helena offers in developing the whole child, come from our Camps programme. At Helena every year level from Pre-Primary to Year 12 goes on a camp during the year. From a one-night sleepover on campus, to Point Perron and Albany or trekking the Cape to Cape, and scaling Karajini Gorges, we adventure to the most wondrous locations in WA.

Camps are a unique an integral part of our learning, providing age-appropriate challenges that enhance resilience and personal growth. Our camps are integrated with core learning experiences and structured so each builds on the personal and academic growth of the previous year. The underlying focus is developing independence, self-awareness, resilience and teamwork.
