OUR PURPOSE

The Outdoor Education Group’s purpose is to make learning outdoors accessible to all young Australians.

We support development and growth, bringing education to life in the outdoors.

We believe all young people deserve to be equipped with the skills they need to make a positive impact in society. So we use the natural world to enrich student learning and strengthen essential capabilities such as leadership, resilience, self-belief, communication, social cohesion, and critical and creative thinking.

EDUCATIONAL ADVENTURES IN THE MOST SPECTACULAR SETTINGS

Our programs are outcome-focused and allow students to explore their own capabilities, strengthen emotional skills and develop resilience through inclusive and fun activities in the natural world.

We provide unique experiences in Australia’s most diverse and beautiful environments; from on-site incursions, site-based camps, extended journeys to 30-day expeditions, we have the right experience for your school community.

Whether you are starting an outdoor education program at your school or wanting to enhance your current program, our team will recommend the right program for your desired learning outcomes.
