Delivering

EFFECTIVE

Outdoor Education

With an outcome-based approach and a sound understand of the theory of experiential learning we design your program so the students get the best results from their experience.

Outdoor Education naturally lends itself to addressing core components of the Australian Curriculum, in particular, HPE, Humanities and Science, however there are a huge range of life skills that are addressed throughout our programs.

In order to maximise the effectiveness of your Outdoor Education experience we tailor our programs with a focus on the following key concepts.

Developing a range of skills and knowledge through safe and active participation in outdoor learning.

Building communication and collaboration skills by achieving common goals in outdoor activities.

Promoting personal health, wellbeing and mindfulness through immersion in natural environments.

Enhancing decision-making skills and personal responsibility through the task-orientated independently-led journeys.

Fostering a positive growth mindset and personal development through the undertaking and achievement of self-propelled journeys.

Increasing appreciation of natural environments through building human-nature relationships, the development of cultural appreciation and a ‘sense of self’.

I wish I could give these champs 6 stars! The staff were absolutely awesome. Amazing attention to detail and positive reinforcement really made our school camp experience outstanding. Yeah. I’m gonna do it.

Laura Taylor

My son attended the mountain bike session today at Kuitpo Forest. Although the conditions were wet – he came home exhausted but happy. He had a great time and learnt lots. Looking forward to next school holiday sessions.

Mia Gammon

We were well looked after by Brad, Sam & Shannon up at Mambray Creek and Melrose. The kids were taken care of brilliantly, and even the teachers and parents were thought of. We had coffee 😉 Thanks for a great camp
