Year 5 - Camp Wombaroo

Redlands

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Year 5 program focuses on the students moving away from “the world revolves around me” attitude to being part of the team and part of the greater community of the year level. Facilitation will centre around the acknowledgement that an individual’s actions have an impact on the group.

Based at the OEG property in the Southern Highlands, the Year 5 camp steps up the outdoor challenge element offering the students their first taste of tented accommodation. Using the skills required to provide a base camp including cooking, fire building and tent pitching, the students collaborate to set up their site. Nothing develops friendships quite like an evening around the campfire under the stars.
