Year 7 Camp Marysville
Alphington Grammar School
Lush forest and waterfalls are the backdrop for this adventure at Camp Marysville. Students will develop their self confidence, teamwork skills, and personal capacity through participating in a variety of challenging activities including rock climbing, team-building initiatives, canoeing, bike riding and bush-walking.
Rock ClimbingRock climbing on a climbing wall or up a rockface invites students to set their own goals, step by step they develop confidence even if they don’t make it to the top in the beginning.
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!
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.
BushcraftBushcraft teaches students the art of using natural resources to allow them to thrive in the outdoors. During bushcraft, we like to get our hands dirty by building shelters, setting up campfires or identifying plants.
CyclingA favourite activity among our team, cycling along a windy track together or playing group games builds resilience and independence in young people.
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!
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.
