Making Men Camp

The following camp comes highly recommended by De La Salle College students:

About Making Men

This is a life changing experience and one of the best things you could do for your boy at this critical time.

Our evidence based outcomes for boys who have attended these programs include:

  • Stronger father son relationships
  • More confident communication and social skills
  • Higher levels of respect for mothers and women
  • Improved attitude towards finishing school
  • Improved motivation to participate and give back to the community
  • Increases self esteem

Why do the Making Men Camp?

  • To bring out the best in your boy and celebrate him becoming a young man.
  • To address the physical, emotional and psychological changes happening in your boy’s life in a safe and structured way.
  • To ensure the development of strong, healthy relationships that will continue to support him during his teenage and adult years.
  • To encourage your son to think about his future and what he wants to do with his life. It gives him an opportunity to think about what childhood behaviours he is ready to let go of as he moves into manhood.

Urgent — Seeking old College diary

Many years ago, a school diary was issued to the students that had a few pages at the start which listed the swimming and athletic records held by students at the school over the years. If you have kept a copy of this diary, could you please email a copy of these pages to me at or mail them to me here at school at your earliest convenience.
