At the beginning of Term 1 each year all Sheldon College students from Years 5 to 12 participate in a challenging and supportive annual Outdoor Education program.  Students along with their teachers attend a number of exciting camp venues across South East Queensland and northern New South Wales, where they participate in a range of outdoor and environmental activities and challenges.

The unique camping program offered by Sheldon College at the beginning of each year provides students with the opportunity to form positive relationships with their peers and staff with whom they will be working throughout the year.  Students along with their teachers participate in a range of activities including bike riding, abseiling, sailing, kayaking, fishing, camping, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, snorkelling and rock climbing.

Camps provide a sense of achievement for our students as they learn new skills and develop new friendships through a range of independent and group challenges in an outdoor educational setting.  At Sheldon College, we provide a camp program which promotes Independence, Outdoor Education and Real-Life Relevance.  Outdoor camps provide the perfect opportunity for students to link new skills and strategies to the real world.  Our Programs ensure all students can link what they are doing to real world scenarios and relate their skills and knowledge to other situations where they may be needed in life.
