Year 11 Outdoor Education Week


Camp Theme: Leadership for Life
Locations: Brisbane
Length: 4 nights/5 days
Accommodation: Shared Accommodation (Sunday to Thursday) with ensuite facilities

The theme for the Year 11 Camp is Leadership for Life and will be held in Brisbane. The camp will provide an opportunity for students to explore the notion of leadership during their final year at Whitsunday Anglican School and beyond. There are two main focuses for student development of the Year 11 Camp. The first focus is on leadership and team development. The camp provides a key opportunity for students who have leadership aspirations to display their leadership capabilities as well as receive training and guidance on how to be a successful leader.

The second focus is exposing the students to the various pathways that are available to them at a tertiary level. Students will visit a number of universities allowing them the opportunity to explore faculties of interest, campus facilities and accommodation. The camp will also allow students to develop an understanding of big-city living and begin thinking about their preferred options after school. 

Learning and Outdoor Educational Outcomes
Students will take part in a variety of activities which promote skills in teamwork, problem solving, self-awareness, career planning, development of a leadership vision, life-skills and service learning.

Example Activities from Camp
These skills are fostered and celebrated through activities including outdoor education challenges, practical seminars conducted by yLead, team-building challenges, visits to a number of tertiary educational and accommodation facilities, guest presentations by experts in the field of leadership, opportunities to communicate with past scholars and attendance at the Leadership Dinner, amongst others.
