Albert Park College Year 7
Camp Eildon & Wanggai Bush Camp
This is four day program will be held at Camp Eildon and Wanggai Bush Camp and surrounding area. Students will undertake multiple activities which are designed to introduce the concept of an outdoor journey and provide an opportunity for camp craft skills, such as cooking, hygiene in the field and navigation. An OEG Group Leader and Albert Park staff member will be with the group at all times. Groups will be joined by Activity Specialists from both OEG and external providers. An OEG Course Coordinator will float across the program to support all groups as required. Set amongst beautiful tea-tree scrub with creeks and streams trickling throughout, students will be doing a range of activities, including initiatives, bushwalking, cycling and low ropes.
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!
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!
Low RopesLow ropes is the perfect warm-up for the day, with fun obsticals promoting communication, teamwork, decision-making and coordination.
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!
CyclingA favourite activity among our team, cycling along a windy track together or playing group games builds resilience and independence in young people.
CookingFor many, this is the first time they will be cooking and preparing their own meals. Some discover a new passion while developing healthy habits and self-belief.
