Year 9 and 10 Summer Camp 2024

YEAR 9 AND 10 SUMMER CAMP 2024




Every January for more than 30 years, Frontier Club has organised a Summer Camp for boys in Year 7-10. Every year the camp has been bigger and better, and with all this experience behind us we guarantee that the 2024 Summer Camp will be the biggest and best yet! Like all Frontier Club camps, there will be plenty of action and fun. But it will also be an opportunity to grow in skills – like teamwork, leadership and service. It will be a great chance to make new friends and to learn more about yourself and others. Having pauses in the action each day will allow time for personal reflection and prayer. This will be helped by daily presentations about living virtues and Mass offered in the camp chapel. Please apply by filling out the application form asap as places will be limited. We’d be delighted to see you there!

Please note that once again this year we are splitting the Summer Camp into two camps. One camp will be for Year 7 and 8s (Wedderburn Christian Campsite) and the other will be for Year 9s and 10s (BXVI Retreat Centre). 

The Plan

This year we will have a new venue, new challenges and and more fun!

Dates: For the Year 9 and 10s, this year the camp will be held from Monday the 15th January 2024 to Thursday the 18th January 2024.

Location: This years Summer Camp is being held at Benedict XVI Retreat Centre. Please see Map below.

Transport: Boys should be dropped and picked up from Benedict XVI Retreat Centre.

First day: We will meet at the campsite at 10 am. And there will be Mass at 10.30am if any parents would like to stay.

Last day: On the final day of the camp, we will have for all the families and friends. We will celebrate the end of the camp and the start of the new year at Mirrabooka. All families are invited to join us at the campsite. Some skits and music shows will be prepared by the boys. We will have an awards ceremony and the winning team of the camp will be announced.
