AN EXAMPLE OF WHATS ON OFFER AT CAMP JUNGAI
YOUNG LEADERS PROGRAM
The Young Leaders program is one of many offerings at Camp Jungai. Designed for junior school students, this 3 or 5-day program focuses on leadership and collaboration. Students participate in a range of outdoor activities designed to empower, stimulate, and inspire confidence, developing both their individual skills and ability to work in teams harmoniously.
Designed for middle school students, this 3 or 5-day program supports the development of team-building and collaboration skills by encouraging students to face challenges, push past shortcomings and work together to achieve agreed outcomes. At Camp Jungai students explore social and personal responsibility and deepen their bonds as they learn new skills.
Our Leadership retreat is perfect for senior school students and can be 3 or 5 days in length. By providing a break from the school environment, this program offers students the opportunity to reflect on themselves, their relationships, and their future beyond school. Students explore what it means to be a good leader and harness confidence and perseverance.
BushwalkingBe it a day's hike or a short walk to camp, bushwalking engages all our senses allowing us to explore nature and our place within it. And we always find something exciting along the way!
CyclingA favourite activity among our team, cycling along a windy track together or playing group games builds resilience and independence in young people.
High RopesOur high ropes course delivers an exciting challenge with students setting their own goals and developing confidence, determination and decision-making skills.
Marine DiscoveryLooking at a peaceful pond is nice but we'd rather learn about the ecosystems thriving in it. We may also get out hands a little dirty but we think that's the best way to learn!
CulturalEncourage an understanding and appreciation for history and diversity by connecting students to a different way of life through storytelling, bushcraft and more.
CanoeingFollowing the flow of the river, we love to explore the waterways on our canoes. Working as a team, using our muscles and problem-solving together to reach our base for the night.
OrienteeringThere's nothing more exciting than learning a new skill! Orienteering teaches us to read a map and a compass, gauge distances and provides lots of great learning opportunities.
CampingCamping out in tents is our speciality! We love telling stories around the campfire, looking up at the night sky and creating memories that will last a lifetime!
Raft BuildingWorking together, students design and build a raft out of available materials then test it out on the water, raft building is loved by students of all ages.
InitiativesOur many initiatives can be large or small group activities on the land or water, encouraging social connection, negotiation, problem-solving and adaptability, all while having fun!
