Camps and Retreats

Students at CBHS Lewisham have the opportunity to attend camps and retreats at various points throughout their schooling. Our current schedule is as follows:


Year 5 - Milson Island

Year 6 - Canberra Excursion

Year 7 - Broken Bay

Year 9 - The Rubicon Experience held at Workul Koo, Terrigal

Year 11 - Stanwell Tops


Our retreats are designed to positively impact on the lives our boys both in and out of the classroom through exciting activities and challenges that activate key learning in:


  • Prayer and reflection

  • Communication

  • Decision making

  • Problem solving

  • Resilience

  • Team building and 

  • Leadership.


During Week 1 of Term 4, all students of Year 11 participate in a three-day retreat at The Tops Conference Centre in Stanwell Tops, Wollongong.  The aim of the retreat is for students to gain an increased awareness and understanding of themselves, their peers and their continuing relationship with God.  The venue provides an ideal opportunity to allow time for quiet reflection as well as group sessions and recreational activities. The retreat is facilitated by staff from CBHS.  There is an outdoor education component which will be facilitated by trained staff from the venue.


The retreat dates have been scheduled to provide the opportunity for students to rest and focus their energies before they embark fully on their HSC courses in Term 4.  The Announcement of School Leaders will also take place around this time, so it is an ideal opportunity for the students to set goals for themselves and for the year ahead.
