Breakout Retreat

Breakout Retreat Camp is an annual two-night sleepover camp exclusively for Year 6 students.

The camp connects pre-teens from across Primary Schools before they transition into High School.

At camp, students form new friendships and bond over the next new, exciting chapter in their school lives. Programs at camp keep students active and engaged, and include sports activities, fun games, and other bonding experiences.

Breakout Retreat Camp is run during the October school holidays in partnership with Maccabi NSW.
