|Camp Based Programs|
For primary schools – these are often based in hard top venue and can be 1 night to several nights. Primary school education is greatly concerned with the development of the entire child. It is therefore just as important to provide thoughtful curriculum in outdoor education as it is in maths or language. Multi day primary programs often give a taste of many different activities, these can be physical, creative or environmental. All designed for students to have fun and learn at the same time.
For secondary schools - In the years when adolescents are feeling the most pressures, there is a way to give students a sense of self worth, achievement and satisfaction through outdoor education.
When students are taken out of the traditional school setting they can be given a fresh start to achieve. Students who are seen as different often excel in the outdoor setting, gaining new respect for themselves and from their peers. A vital part of this learning is an appreciation for the environment through activities in the environment. A sense of community is gained through small groups achieving and dealing with day to day problems encountered in a camping situation.
All these activities need to be handled and run carefully, with attention to clear objectives and safety standards, so those successful outcomes in both hard and soft skills are achieved. These programs can take the form of small taster sessions in many different activities or concentrate on one activity where students can choose an activity and develop real skill in that activity.
