Adventure Based Learning Camp (on demand, usually in school holidays)
This residential course is organised in the school holidays with the aim of getting students (Year 11 - 13) from a variety of schools participating. The course provides students with the opportunity to experience Adventure Based Learning in an outdoor environment. There is a strong focus on personal and social development through participation in outdoor activities.
Students will set and review personal and group goals, challenge themselves, develop self-confidence and a feeling of self worth. This is an ideal course to develop team work.
All participants will have the opportunity to complete three L2 unit standards in Adventure Based Learning for a total of 9 credits. The instructors will be assessing the students throughout the camp, providing feedback and coaching where necessary.
