Activities

Bushwalking
Bushwalking
Be 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!
Camping
Camping
Camping 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!
Raft Building
Raft Building
Working 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.
Abseiling
Abseiling
Descending 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.
Cooking
Cooking
For 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.
Flying Fox
Flying Fox
Approximately 2 meters above ground, our flying fox gives the exhilarating sensation of flight while also improving students' balance, coordination and body strength.
Rock Climbing
Rock Climbing
Rock 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.
