Year 11 Eildon Region (Kosi Prep)

St. Michael's Grammar School

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This program is designed specifically as a prep trip for students preparing for  the Year 11 Kosi to Coast expedition in September. The program is structured with time to teach students the craft of bushwalking, pack carrying, tent camping and bush cooking . There are two solid days of walking planned where students will learn the craft and apply knowledge and expertise shared by the OEG staff. By the end of this short but intense journey, students will be ready for the next prep trip on Mt Stirling in winter (August) to train for the Kosi snow portion of the expedition.
