PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This camp introduces the underlying philosophies of all our programs (challenge by choice, no put downs and personal responsibility). An understanding of group dynamics and personal responsibility is introduced through the Adventure Learning activities. The Year 10 students will be divided into smaller groups for the duration of the camp. This encourages the development of relationships between peers and OLMC staff as they navigate the challenges of this program together. The OEG model of “Explore, Reflect, Wonder” will be introduced to students
