Yarra Valley Grammar LINK@9 Step Up Step Out: Hiking and Surfing
Yarra Valley Grammar
This latest addition to the suite of Year 9 camps will take the students to the stunning Wilsons Prom National Park. Here the students will be given the opportunity to learn to surf and stand-up paddle-board, then head out on an overnight hike. Students will be placed in groups of no more than 12 students per group. Each group will be accompanied by a Yarra Valley Grammar School staff member and an OEG staff member for the entire Camp. Students will camp at Tidal River for three nights and one night at Oberon Bay, they will sleep in tents every night and have an opportunity to cook meals for the group.
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!
Marine DiscoveryLooking at a peaceful pond is nice but we'd rather learn about the ecosystems thriving in it. We may also get out hands a little dirty but we think that's the best way to learn!
SurfingFirst we try our skills on the sand, then we take our boards to the shallows and test our balance, determination and courage!
