Year 10 Mt Stirling
The Knox School
This journey will see students travel to Mt. Stirling to spend 5 days hiking and camping in this breathtaking part of the Victorian High Country. The program provides students with an opportunity to challenge themselves in a positive and supported environment.
The groups will be made of up to 14 students and accompanied at all times with a staff member from The Knox School and a Group Leader from OEG. The groups will further be supported by a Course Coordinator.
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!
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.
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.
