The curriculum of St John’s Regional College is supported by camps and experiences across all year levels. Students are offered fully facilitated team building camps, immersion programs, reflective faith based retreats and interstate and overseas opportunities. Our students learn life skills and engage in experiences that will remain memorable well into their adult lives.


Year Level Camps & Retreats

In Year 7, students have the opportunity to meet and make friends early in the first term.  Students either attend Adanac Camp in Yarra Junction or Don Bosco Camp at Safety Beach in Dromana. In these relaxed and enjoyable settings, students get to know their peers and teachers and are welcomed into the St John’s community.

In Year 9, students attend an outdoor education camp at Lake Eildon. This provides students with the chance to challenge themselves through new experiences. There are a variety of activities, both water-based and in the natural bush setting which promote personal development and team building for the students.

The College also provides Retreat opportunities at different year levels. These retreats enable students to explore ideas about faith and life. These experiences culminate with the Year 12 Retreat held during the first term.


Italian Tour

St John’s Regional College offers all students in Years 9-12 the opportunity to experience life in Italy with all its uniqueness and beauty.

Travelling encourages independence, resilience, peer support, risk-taking in the language, appreciation of cultural differences and of course improves fluency and confidence in the language.

Italy has so much to offer in the areas of history, religion, art, cuisine, architecture, music and language just to name a number of advantages.
