Camps and excursions


​Year 7 Camp

Year 7 Camp is a vital opportunity for students to build resilience, collaborate and take managed risks in a safe and supportive environment. Held at Mapleton in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, students engage in activities such as archery, ropes courses and abseiling during the day and in creative and collaborative pursuits at night. In previous years, students have found that camp is core to their Year 7 experience, helping them find their place at High School.

Year 9 Camp

Yeronga State High School offers enriching and exhilarating camps for students. The Year 9 camp has a leadership focus. YSHS camp programs have an emphasis on team initiatives, team navigation and other activities requiring interdependence among students for the success of the group. In these programs, students learn that each participant's contribution is vital if the group is to succeed in the task at hand.


Year 11 Leadership Camp

Yeronga State High School offers enriching and exhilarating camps for students. The Year 11 leadership camp is for students who identify themselves as senior leaders of YSHS.  It is also for students who want to further develop their understanding of team work and goal setting.

Yeronga State High School recognises the significance of developing a leadership culture in young people to positively influence attitudes and behaviours to improve the school culture. All students have the potential to develop leadership skills. The camp aims to equip our future leaders with the skills and confidence needed to develop strong leadership. Students will learn about Senior Leadership Preparation Core Skills – inclusion, team building, morale, and peer organisation. They will be exposed to challenging activities that will further develop their leadership skills and ability to cooperate, connect and work together as a team.

We have our leadership camp at Emu Gully where the Challenge program is based on historical events and theatres of conflict including WW1, WW2 and Vietnam.  Activities that students undergo provide both context and purpose with the opportunity for exceptional outcomes. The focus is on experiencing and demonstrating the core character values of Courage, Mateship, Sacrifice and Perseverance. The core activities include the Western Front, Siege of Tobruk, Bridge over the River Kwai, Tunnel Rats of Vietnam, Hellfire Pass, The Kokoda Track and the Night Walk.
