Year 9 Adventure Learning
Guildford Grammar School
This camp reinforces the underlying philosophies of all our programs (challenge by choice, no put downs and personal responsibility). A basic understanding of group dynamics and personal responsibility is introduced through the Adventure Learning activities. The Year 9 students will be divided into smaller groups for the duration of the camp. This encourages the development of relationships between peers and GGS staff as they navigate the challenges of this program. The OEG model of “Explore, Reflect, Wonder” will be introduced to students.
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.
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!
High RopesOur high ropes course delivers an exciting challenge with students setting their own goals and developing confidence, determination and decision-making skills.
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!
Low RopesLow ropes is the perfect warm-up for the day, with fun obsticals promoting communication, teamwork, decision-making and coordination.
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.
CavingCaving stirs adventure and excitement, allowing us to overcome new obstacles together through an inspiring new world and a fresh perspective.
