Year 9 Adventure Learning
Swan Christian College
The Year 9 Adventure Learning Program is run over 5 days with half of the year group coming from Monday to Wednesday lunchtime, and the remaining students from Wednesday lunch time until Friday (see Program below). All students will have the opportunity to challenge themselves in a fun and inclusive environment, guided by the OEG Group Leaders and Swan Christian College staff, and hopefully make some new friendships they can take back to school. The OEG “Explore, Reflect, Wonder” model will underpin this experience.
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!
AbseilingDescending 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.
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.
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.
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!
Camp craftCamp craft familiarises students with all that is involved in preparing and establishing a campsite. Students learn to set up their tents, a handwash station, camp kitchen and how to use tarpaulins.
Raft BuildingWorking together, students design and build a raft out of available materials then test it out on the water, raft building is loved by students of all ages.
