Our 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.

Helena College also facilitates a range of other high school camps that enhance personal and academic growth. These include the Politics and Law trip to Canberra, Years 11-12 Outdoor Education expeditions, overseas language and cultural trips, an annual ski trip and a music camp.

There are also camps run through World Challenge, an independent organisation that provides scaffolded learning experiences for students to plan and fundraise for expedition and community service trips overseas. Helena students have been to Nepal, Vietnam/Cambodia and Tanzania with World Challenge trips.
