Middle & Senior School Camping Program
The Mackay Christian College Middle & Senior School Camping Program has been developed over a number of years. Each camp has a purpose aimed at the development of the child and their respective Year Level cohort at that age. We are well aware of the cost associated with these camps and the impact this has on the family budget. Our aim is to provide you with as much detail as possible so you can plan for these events. We have included all camps so you will have an idea of what to expect this year and in the years to come.
Camps are an important part of the College’s curriculum and, while we strongly encourage all students to attend, we recognise there are circumstances that do not make this possible.
The only reason a student may not be able to attend camp from the College’s perspective is because of consistent poor behaviour. If a child is on a behaviour card, their opportunity will be reviewed and the invitation to attend will be at the discretion of the Year Level Coordinator. Year 9 camp is an exception to this – students with an injury or disability may also be unable to participate in this adventure style camp.
Planning ahead with the best information available, hopefully will help avoid disappointment. Please note that the costs of camps listed below are estimates only and these costs may vary a little.
Should the cost of the camp be a barrier to your child attending, we would encourage you to talk to Mrs Tracy Swadling in our Accounts Department about a possible payment plan, even if it is for a camp next year. All camps need to be paid for in advance of the camp occurring.
Each camp is directed by the Year Level Coordinator for that year level and will be held at similar times of the year each year.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact the relevant Head of School through the College Office or by email.
