Haileybury Year 7 Camp Jungai
5 day March & July program
This Year 7 program is the first in a sequential Outdoor Education program at Haileybury College. The venue for the program is Camp Jungai located in the Rubicon Valley, in Northeast Victoria.
For five days students will participate in a range of activities including overnight bushwalk, canoeing, high ropes, camp craft and Aboriginal Cultural sessions.
The aim of this program is to develop basic outdoor skills such as pitching a tent, packing for an overnight hike and to build and strengthen relationships.
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!
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.
CulturalEncourage an understanding and appreciation for history and diversity by connecting students to a different way of life through storytelling, bushcraft and more.
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!
High RopesOur high ropes course delivers an exciting challenge with students setting their own goals and developing confidence, determination and decision-making skills.
Low RopesLow ropes is the perfect warm-up for the day, with fun obsticals promoting communication, teamwork, decision-making and coordination.
OrienteeringThere's nothing more exciting than learning a new skill! Orienteering teaches us to read a map and a compass, gauge distances and provides lots of great learning opportunities.
