Year 7 - Kosciuszko
The Year 7 Program is the launch pad into the Redlands Outdoor Education Program and provides students with a scaffolded outdoor experience. The intent is for students to forge friendships and build their confidence in a safe and dynamic environment. A range of activities including; bushwalking, camping, canoeing, cycling, initiatives and orienteering is part of the Year 7 Program. Students will camp each night nestled in the surrounds of the Kosciuszko region with their Tutors and Camp Leaders.
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!
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!
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.
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!
OrienteeringThere's nothing more exciting than learning a new skill! Orienteering teaches us to read a map and a compass, gauge distances and provides lots of great learning opportunities.
