Year 8 - Camp Eildon & Wanggai Bush Camp

Whitefriars College

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This is a 4 day introductory program held at OEG’s Camp Eildon and Wanggai Bush Camps on the banks of the Goulburn River. The program features a range of activities, including bushwalking, cycling and high ropes. The activities are designed to introduce the concept of an outdoor journey.

The students will work in groups of up to 14 whilst being supported by an OEG group leader, and a Whitefriars College representative, as well as specialist activity staff. 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, is central to the educational and pastoral outcomes.
