Resilience and Leadership Camp Program
 
Year 7 Resilience Camp
All Year 7 students are invited to attend the Emu Gully Adventure Camping Program designed to build resilience.  The Camp focuses on the ANZAC character values of courage, perseverance, mateship and sacrifice.
The Core Values of Emu Gully support the school’s values to develop and foster:
  • Character
  • Respect
  • Leading by example
  • Safety
  • A “can do” attitude
Students will spend three days at Emu Gully and will be issued with their own tent, mess kit with eating utensils, drinking canteen, cup and hexamine stove. (These they can take home at the end of camp). 

Activities will involve team planning and developing a sense of community and support to ensure they take these attributes back to school.

Year 11 Leadership Camp
The Year 11 Leadership camp is held at Helidon at the Emu Gully Adventure Camp. 

The purpose of the camp is to develop teamwork and leadership qualities with the activities typically based around epic ANZAC events. The camp aims to inspire and empower students to live purpose filled lives in unity with others, by development of character traits synonymous with ANZAC values of courage, perseverance, mateship and sacrifice.

The majority of activities at Emu Gully are  framed to provide a simple historical context of epic ANZAC events such as The Western Front, the Siege of Tobruk, The Tunnel Rats of Vietnam, The Bridge over the River Kwai and the Kokoda Track. Each activity confronts participants with the choice to demonstrate and reflect on the character values needed to succeed in the activity, and more importantly in life.
 
Students also have the opportunity to discuss their leadership aspirations in the school.
