Participation

Students are able to participate in six camps and two Retreats in their six years at St Patrick’s 鶹Ƶý. 

It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.

— David Attenborough

Variety

A wide variety of venues throughout Tasmania are utilised as part of this exciting, challenging and compulsory program of outdoor experiences.  The sequential nature of the camps program from Year 7 through to Year 10 gives students the ability to further develop important life skills including resilience, self confidence, empathy, leadership, initiative, cooperation, resourcefulness and independence.
