OLE Camps – Year 3 to 6

OLE Camps – Year 3 to 6

OLE stands for Other Learning Experiences and is a mandatory and unique multiday/overnight College event held this year during Week 2 of Term 4.

The week is a wonderful opportunity for Oxley students to explore new experiences with their peers in a supervised and supportive environment and immerse themselves in activities we hope will enrich their lives beyond the classroom.
