Guildford Grammar School Year 6 Lane Poole Reserve
Guildford Grammar School
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.
Flying FoxApproximately 2 meters above ground, our flying fox gives the exhilarating sensation of flight while also improving students' balance, coordination and body strength.
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.
Raft BuildingWorking together, students design and build a raft out of available materials then test it out on the water, raft building is loved by students of all ages.
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!
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!
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.
Camp craftCamp craft familiarises students with all that is involved in preparing and establishing a campsite. Students learn to set up their tents, a handwash station, camp kitchen and how to use tarpaulins.
SwimmingSometimes we like to get in the water too! At shallow depths, we like to explore riverbanks, lakes and oceans. Swimming improves essential skills such as balance, posture, coordination and concentration.
