School Programs


Each year students in years 7 to 12 have the opportunity to participate in a school camp.

Camps provide students access to learning a variety of skills in different environments. Many of our students may not have experienced the different settings that our camps provide. Students gain skills in independence, leadership, teamwork and friendship in a fun and engaging environment. We aim to provide, a bush experience, a river experience, and a beach experience, during the course of students’ time at CCESC.

We have separate camps for our middle school (years 7 to 10), and senior school (years 11 and 12).

Our year 12 students also attend an overnight Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) camp as part of our DFES Cadet program.

Camp sites we have previously visited are:

Middle School camp:

  • Point Peron
  • Point Walter
  • Ern Halliday
  • Fairbridge Farm

Senior School camp:

  • Rottnest Island
  • Busselton
  • Albany

DFES Camp:

  • Perth Hills Discovery Centre, Mundaring

Students who don’t attend camp are still able to experience similar activities in a school setting that foster skills in independence, leadership, teamwork and friendship. For example, non-campers also have the opportunity to experience a wildlife incursion, food preparation in the home economics classroom and excursions to Bounce, AMF Bowling and Fremantle.

School camps are heavily subsidised through classroom enterprise programs and school funds.
