Melbourne Indigenous Transition School
This is an OEG facilitated Eildon journey program for students from Melbourne Indigenous Transition School. With an emphasis on communication, teamwork and self and social management, this program facilitates students’ transition into adulthood and the world beyond school. Students will be required to work together and lead each other in teams to achieve the outcomes of the program.
Activities include bushwalking, rafting, bike riding, high ropes and initiatives whilst journeying in the Eildon region. Students will further develop skills such as managing the aspects of communal living and cooking together. Their success will depend on their teamwork and communication skills as they learn more about themselves and each other.
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!
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!
RaftingRafting with us provides just the right combination of gentle calm and excitement. Float with us down untouched waterways, with surprise, challenge and fun at every turn.
High RopesOur high ropes course delivers an exciting challenge with students setting their own goals and developing confidence, determination and decision-making skills.
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!
CyclingA favourite activity among our team, cycling along a windy track together or playing group games builds resilience and independence in young people.
