How our


We provide varied school camp experiences of increasing difficulty for each year level, which teach your students concepts and skills that will set the foundation for life and personal growth. By looking at school camps as a sequential learning experience, we create the right level of risk exposure to promote a peak experience. This scope and sequence of experiential learning allows your students to develop a self-sufficient skill level that ultimately gives them the ability to make knowledgeable choices about the outdoor experiences they then take on.

As the level of challenge and experience increase, the students develop increased positive emotion through their achievements. The students also have the opportunity to develop essential life tools such as personal responsibility, problem solving, independence as a leader and the ability to work with others.

We take care of…


From booking accommodation and providing transport, to arranging catering requirements, creating camp booklets and parent’s letters, collecting medical information, and supplying all specialised equipment let us take the hassle out of planning your next camp.

Or we can work with YOU

Your dedicated Outdoor Education Manager will work with school staff to custom design an adventure based curriculum which is best suited to meet desired educational outcomes, from stand alone recreational camps to whole school sequential programs incorporating multi-day journeys in natural environments.

Whether your school is looking for specific links to the Australian Curriculum, outcomes including leadership, personal development and orientation, or maybe you’re just after some fun adventure activities, there is no program too big or small for our dedicated team of outdoor professionals.

We tailor our programs and operate from over thirty different locations Australia-wide. Examples of our popular programs styles with specific themes and outcomes are seen below.



Designed for Year 1-4 students, WILD CHILD focuses on encouraging creativity, curiosity and resilience through hands on nature-based experiences in bush-based environments. Activities include nature cubby-building, camouflage adventure, making mud pies and searching the forest floor for critters.



Suitably designed for Year 5-9 students, the WILD HILLS programs are based at a number of dormitory and tent based venues in the Adelaide Hills. With outcomes of leadership, cooperation, orientation and team development, these programs have the perfect combination of land-based adventure activities such as high ropes and mountain biking with team building activities promoting group cohesion.



Are you after sunshine, salt and sandy toes? Popular for Year 6-8 students, WILD COAST is perfect for orientation in Term 1 or end of year celebrations in Term 4. Commonly based on the Fleurieu Peninsula, the South Coast or the Yorke Peninsula, the dormitory style program sees students snorkelling, kayaking, raft building, fishing, rock pooling and all thing coastal.



Unique to our campsite on Hindmarsh Island and designed for Year 6-8 students, WILD ISLAND incorporates both base camp dormitory camping with introductory kayaking expeditions through the Coorong National Park or Currency Creek. Add some surfing or sailing sessions and aquatic team building and you have yourselves one of our most popular program models.



Exclusively designed for the Flinders Ranges and Grampians regions, often in conjunction with Rite Journey programming at Year 9, WILD PEAKS sees students set up base camps in bush-based camping environments with a focus on resilience, community and challenge. The students find themselves abseiling, rock climbing, bushwalking and spending a night solo, all alone in a controlled setting to reflect and disconnect. This is the ultimate PEAK experience.



Designed for Year 9-10 students, RAW is our journey based expedition programming with a focus on the development of Resilience, Achievement and Wellbeing (RAW). Whether it’s via bushwalking, kayaking or mountain biking, students carry all their equipment from campsite to campsite using navigation and outdoor education skills. RAW is designed to challenge students, increasing their ability to cope with adversity and enhancing positive emotion.

THREE levels of


At Wilderness Escape we understand that schools cater to a very diverse range of individuals and families, and that not all can afford the cost of premium experiences. Therefore, we have developed three different levels of service which can cater to your schools various needs.

​With access to locations Australia wide, a warehouse full of specialised equipment, a fleet of vehicles, and a consistent roster of full time staff, Wilderness Escape has the ability to conduct programs from single day “come and try” activities for small groups to whole school “exit weeks” across multiple venues.
