Yarra Valley Grammar - Year 5
Yarra Valley Grammar
Groups will comprise of up to 14 students. Students are joined by an OEG Group Leader and a Yarra Valley Grammar staff member. Groups will also be supported by OEG Activity Specialists as well as an OEG Course Coordinator. While this program will offer a variety of different challenges it will also provide a greater opportunity for students to connect with themselves, their group and the environment around them. They will have the chance to grow skills in the areas of camp craft, cooking, navigation and personal organisation as well as exploring leadership and resilience. This is all aimed to prepare them for Year 6 and the real world beyond.
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!
CanoeingFollowing the flow of the river, we love to explore the waterways on our canoes. Working as a team, using our muscles and problem-solving together to reach our base for the night.
High RopesOur high ropes course delivers an exciting challenge with students setting their own goals and developing confidence, determination and decision-making skills.
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!
