Yarra Valley Grammar Link@9 Step Up Step Out: Year 9 Bogong High Plains Bushwalk

Yarra Valley Grammar

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Students explore leadership, teamwork, resilience, and community living over 5 days as they bushwalk through Victoria’s stunning alpine High Plains region. Students will develop and expand their outdoor living skills, taking turns navigating and guiding the group, and working as a team to set up camp and cook each night.

 

The High Plains bushwalk journey is one of a suite of five possible options that represent the peak of the outdoor education program at Yarra Valley Grammar School, and which present opportunities that the students may never have again.
