Immanuel's Year 10 students attend the College's second campus, the Mt Binga Outdoor Education Centre, for a compulsory 4-week program each year. Affectionately known as Binga, the camp is located 2.5 hours away, outside the town of Blackbutt. It is a beautiful, picturesque campus where students learn the value of teamwork, resilience, self-worth and leadership. It is a challenging and sometimes exhausting experience, but when it comes time to leave, many wish they didn't have to, preferring the peace and tranquility of the bush where they come to appreciate a simpler and slower pace of life.
Binga is a unique part of Immanuel's educational offering and students are often transformed through this life-changing
adventure. Whether it be learning about horsemanship; the tranquility of milking cows at dawn; conquering the high ropes course; enduring a long and tiring hike with their mates; or learning to work as a team when preparing meals, every student will return will countless stories about the camaraderie shared and skills they have developed.
The Binga experience is something that is never forgotten. Immanuel Old Scholars talk about their time at Binga at their 20 and 30-year reunions because the time spent there is a wonderful opportunity to grow in confidence and undertake a journey of self-discovery.
