School camps provide children with the opportunity to work with a variety of adults, that will nurture experiential education, build intergenerational relationships and result in a different style of learning. Teacher involvement is, of course, vital to every successful camp, with the bonds between students and teachers strengthened away from the classroom. Our students have the opportunity to form relationships through first-hand experiences with trained, caring adult role models and experience a sense of achievement in a supervised, safe and positive environment as a result.
Each year our Year 5 students experience the Emu Gully Adventure Program at Helidon, Queensland.
The Adventure Program provides participants an opportunity to challenge themselves both individually and collectively to achieve maximum results, and is based around a wide range of military campaigns.
Our Year 6 students spend several days at the Maroon Outdoor Education Centre as part of their orientation to High School. It gives our students the opportunity to engage with students from other schools of the same cohort.
Maroon OEC programs are designed to assist students to learn about themselves and their classmates. At the end of a program all students are encouraged to take what they have learnt here and apply it at home and school.
Boonah State School endeavours to broaden student's learning experiences by giving students the opportunity to experience at least one educational excursion throughout the year.
