Year 10 - Camp Marysville
Presbyterian Ladies College
Girls in Year 10 can choose their own outdoor adventure from a wide range of offerings that include horse-riding, rock-climbing, bush-walking, and a variety of aquatic activities such as surfing, scuba diving, sailing and rafting. Girls take responsibility for menu planning, budgeting, shopping and cooking for their camp group. The focus in Year 10 is on meeting new challenges, developing persistence, and enjoying breaking away from the everyday routine.
BushcraftBushcraft 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.
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!
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.
CyclingA favourite activity among our team, cycling along a windy track together or playing group games builds resilience and independence in young people.
CulturalEncourage an understanding and appreciation for history and diversity by connecting students to a different way of life through storytelling, bushcraft and more.
Rock ClimbingRock 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.
CookingFor 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.
