Excursions & Camps
Excursions and Camps at Gilson College

All students at all year levels participate in excursion and incursions to enrich their learning experiences.

In Years 5 and 6 our students also have overnight camps which involve Sovereign Hill (Grade 5) and Canberra (Grade 6).  In Year 7 our students are introduced to life in a secondary context through a team-building adventure camp. Our Year 8 students complete a 4 day back-to-base hiking expedition which is an ideal preparation for the ‘Learning 4 Life’ program in Year 9.  More details about the Year 9 Program.  In Year 10 our students currently have the opportunity to learn to ski or snowboard in the Victorian Alps.  Year 11 consists of a major interstate trip to visit our tertiary institution in NSW as well as some recreational time on the Gold Coast. The Year 12 trip involves a wholesome alternative to ‘Schoolies Week’  – after their exams are completed.
