Year 8 Camp Marysville

Whitefriars College

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This is a 4-day introductory journey and is fully catered by OEG. The students will work in groups of up to 14 whilst being supported by an OEG group leader, activity support staff and a Whitefriars College representative.

Each group will be supported in managing food, shelter and navigation requirements over the 4 days. The challenge of establishing a functioning community that works cooperatively, to support each other with compassion, is central to the educational and pastoral outcomes required.
