G & T Camp 2023 … it’s a wrap!

123 students and 21 teachers from 18 schools came together for this year’s G & T Camp and what a week they all had! 

Located in pristine Aussie bush, our finest minds participated in amazing workshops while soaking up the fresh air and nature around them.  They created solutions to some of the world’s biggest environmental challenges,  planned buildings using geomatric design principles, built a survival plan after a lunar crash landing, made a fortune on the stockmarket,  explored robotics and chemistry, wrote bestselling novels, created artistic masterpieces capturing the beauty of nature, dug deep into fascinating historical legends, engineered designs for the Artemis space program,  developed a racetrack with Ozbots, produced their own Oscar worth films, developed a big company marketing facelift … and that’s just the beginning. 

Friendships were forged, minds were expanded, gorges were swung across, the dance floor was hopping, the challenges came in all shapes and sizes and the outcomes were outstanding for all.

Looking back at G & T Camp 2022

After a Covid induced 2 year pause, were so thrilled to welcome students back to G & T Camp in 2022.  This is a much loved event on the HICES calendar each year.  

In August 2022, 132 students and 21 teachers from 19 HICES Schools came together for 5 days of mind boggling workshops, wild activities, making great new friends and having lots of good times together. 

Workshops included Robotics, Entrepreneurship, Google Doodles, Cryptology, Visual Arts, Coding Club, Stop Motion Animation, Building an Escape Room, Dramatic Articulation, Architectural Geometry, Living in Space … and LOTS more!
