A teenage boy remains in a critical condition after becoming entangled on a high ropes course on a school camp in southeast Queensland.

The 14-year-old student from Brisbane's Marist College was on a Year 9 camp when the accident occurred just after 10am on Wednesday at Stanmore, north of Brisbane.

He suffered facial and neck injuries and was flown to the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital, where his condition remained critical on Thursday.

His family is by his bedside as workplace health and safety officials try to work out what went wrong.

The college has cancelled the remainder of the camp and is offering counselling to students.
