Colmont School - Year 9,10,11 Eildon Region
Groups will comprise up to 14 students from Colmont School. Students are joined by an OEG Group Leader and a School staff member for the entire program. Groups will also be supported by an OEG Course Coordinator. While this program will prepare students for the Duke of Edinburgh program, it will also provide a greater opportunity for students to connect with themselves, their group, and the environment around them. They will have the chance to further extend their skills in camp craft, navigation, and personal organisation as well as exploring leadership and resilience which will all help prepare them for the next steps they will take inside and outside of the classroom.
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!
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!
