Ballarat Grammar Year 9 Expedition
This program places an emphasis on resourcefulness, teamwork, bravery and the development of community. Students work together to progressively achieve challenges faced through navigation, bush walking, open-water canoeing and cycling for 15 days through the picturesque Eildon Region.
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!
CyclingA favourite activity among our team, cycling along a windy track together or playing group games builds resilience and independence in young people.
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.
