Year 6 Camp Nanga

Guildford Grammar School

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This camp is the beginning of a four year sequence of Adventure Learning at Guildford Grammar School. OEG staff will introduce 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 6 students will be divided into smaller groups for the duration of the camp. This encourages the development of relationships between peers and their teachers as they move through these activities together.
