Camps and Tours are important learning opportunities and experiences for students at Xavier. Whole cohorts of students from Year Four through to Year Ten participate in one to three day camps at venues all over Queensland. In the senior school, subject-based camps and tours are also popular. For example, Marine Biology students partipate in a house-boat trip, Drama and Visual Art students travel to Brisbane for exhibitions and performances, Physics students investigate the construction of rollercoasters at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast, and in 2012 French students are partipating in an exchange program to France.
Every two years, staff are also given the opportunity to participate in an Ignatian Pilgrimage to Europe where they immerse themselves in understanding and experiencing Ignatian Spirituality and following in the footsteps of Saint Francis Xavier and Saint Ignatius Loyola.
