Find Your Feet
The Outdoor Education Foundation
Find Your Feet is a chance for students to get outside, try some new things and meet new people. We guarantee you’ll have a great time! Students will have the opportunity to take part in a trip to the snow, abseiling, rock climbing, an Aboriginal cultural session and bush initiative activities.
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.
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!
AbseilingDescending a rock face or a climbing tower, we love the views from the top and the courage we see as students aim for their personal best and encourage one another.
CulturalEncourage an understanding and appreciation for history and diversity by connecting students to a different way of life through storytelling, bushcraft and more.
WELLBEINGAddressing outcomes centring on physical and mental health, positive attitudes, active contribution, focus and a strong sense of identity.

They will not be able to use their phone during safety briefings, during activities or in situations that exclude others. They also cannot take or distribute photos of others without their permission or post photos to social media.
If students are unwell at departure, they won’t be able to attend the program. If they become unwell on camp, parents/guardians will be contacted to provide transport home.

“This camp taught and showed me a bunch of new things which I really enjoyed learning about. I made tons of new friends who are all so friendly and nice to everyone. The food is great, the cabins are awesome and I had so much fun with my friends. I really enjoyed my stay at the camp and would recommend it to others.”
