LEARNER-CENTRED AND responsive
Spreading our passion for the outdoors to create educational impact across the country.
OUTCOME BEFORE ACTIVITY FOR TRUE IMPACT
As providers of high-quality and powerful experiential learning programs, the planning, delivery and reflection involved in our programs are carefully constructed with precision. We ensure each experience is more than just a camp or a series of activities: it’s about teaching young people universal skills to serve them well for life – wherever it may take them.
Each program provides students with the opportunity to explore and develop an array of vital skills helping shape strong, self-assured and happy young adults. Placing the outcome at the centre allows us to design a clear pathway to student development, growth and success.
By placing the outcome before the activity, we focus on your students’ progress, allowing them to achieve more, no matter their baseline.Request a quote Enquire now
Student outcomes act as a compass guiding us throughout each and every experience, ensuring we meet objectives and arrive at our intended destination. Focusing on learning outcomes helps our team, school staff, and students come to a common understanding of a program’s purpose and goals.
WELL DEFINED STUDENT OUTCOMES
By prioritising the outcomes, we can explain in clear and concise terms the particular skills students can demonstrate, produce, and understand as a result of the program’s design.
With a clear focus on learning outcomes, we create intentional curricular connections between instruction strategies and age-appropriate facilitation. Through program design and structured learning sequences, the outcome-based approach supports capability building on student’s confidence, self-awareness, and wellbeing.
Well defined student outcomes form the foundation of all that we do. Our expertise lies in utilising the natural environment as a vehicle for impact in delivering powerful student outcomes.
the power of experiential learning in the outdoors
Learning in natural environments allows for real, applied learning and memorable experiences with purpose, actions, consequences and instant feedback.
Hands-on experiences beyond the four walls of the classroom stand out and stay with students for life, serving them in all areas as they grow into confident young adults.
The natural world is alive with unexpected lessons at every turn, enabling students to recognise there is more to themselves and others than they realised and building upon their strengths.
Learning in the outdoors supports the development of life skills to be applied in multiple situations and settings, empowering individuals to thrive throughout life.
GROWTH AND DISCOVERY
“I’ve never been comfortable with nature, but after this week, I want to do more outside. The experience changed me as a person and I learnt a lot about myself and did things that I wouldn’t have otherwise.”
Year 8 student, St Peter's College, Adelaide
