HELPING YOUR STUDENTS FIND THEIR PLACE IN THE WORLD
Expeditions are a rite of passage and draw on the array of skills gained throughout your students’ schooling and their journey with The Outdoor Education Group.
SHARING RESPONSIBILITIES AND CELEBRATING VICTORIES
With a focus on leadership, managing risk, problem-solving and resilience, expeditions call for students to collaboratively create a self-sufficient community as they hike, cycle, paddle and climb through changing learning environments.
Our expeditions empower your students to become responsible for their own learning. While working towards independence, expeditions encourage perseverance and ambition, allowing your students to discover their strengths and take pride in their achievements.
BROADENING YOUR STUDENTS’ HORIZONS
A challenging framework encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the world around them.
Students learn to listen, communicate, negotiate, plan and exercise the critical thinking skills necessary to meet the demands of the twenty-first century and beyond.
PREPARING YOUR STUDENTS FOR TOMORROW’S WORLD
Expeditions are extended journeys and range from 10 to 30-days in length, forming the peak experience of a robust outdoor education sequence. The Outdoor Education Group create expeditions to suit your students’ experience levels and particular stage of development, allowing them to draw on the lessons they’ve learnt in previous years.
Our expedition programs are tailored to maximise opportunities for student growth and are uniquely created in partnership with your school to meet your vision and objectives.
Expeditions can take place across remote natural settings, allowing students to exercise true agency and understand the importance of respect for the environment and the diversity of people.Request a quote Enquire now
