Year 9 Camp Margaret River

Penrhos College

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Year 9 Adventure Learning program at Penrhos College is the final preparation or stepping stone before the Murchison Expedition in Year 10 – the culmination of the outdoor education program. The students will be encouraged to take a great deal of autonomy during this camp and will be guided through this process by their OEG Group Leaders and Penrhos College staff. This program is a combination of expedition and base camp and the activities are listed below. The students experience will be underpinned by the OEG “Explore, Reflect, Wonder” philosophy.

Activities

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.
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!
Canoeing
Canoeing
Following 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.
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.
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.
Bushcraft
Bushcraft
Bushcraft teaches students the art of using natural resources to allow them to thrive in the outdoors. During bushcraft, we like to get our hands dirty by building shelters, setting up campfires or identifying plants.
