The College offers an extensive Outdoor Education program that focuses on developing leadership, communication, team-building and organisational skills while providing opportunities for reflection, cultural understanding and environmental awareness. The program is greatly enhanced by the Top End's fantastic, predictable 'dry season' weather.

Diverse Program

The Outdoor Education Program begins with 'Stay-Ups' and 'Sleepovers' in the junior classes and continues through a diverse range of camps for students in Years 4 to Years 12. Camps are a great opportunity for students to challenge themselves individually and to develop team work skills.


Camps are held at the Territory Wildlife Park, Batchelor, Litchfield, Kakadu, Hayes Creek and Annaburoo. The students at Good Shepherd take part in camps designed specifically for their year level.
