We have a unique Choose your Challenge philosophy embedded into all our activities. This philosophy allows all participants to succeed, without necessarily completing the activity. We understand that heights aren’t for everyone, canoeing may terrify people and ziplines may just be too fast, however that shouldn’t mean participants can’t feel like a success within those activities. Afraid of heights? How about a short climb? Terrified of water, try learning techniques and skills on the shore and instructing others. Everyone’s comfort zones are different, and our amazing staff will recognise and individualise each activity so that all students can set their own challenge and decided what success looks like to them within each activity.
Would you like your students to experience sleeping in a tent? With our camp extension programs you have the options to include an onsite tent sleep out for younger student or an offsite tent adventure. Younger students will have the fun experience of sleeping in a tent for a night while being in a safe and comfortable environment close to bathrooms. For older students you can take the experience to the next level where students will enjoy a bush walk, then set up camp in the stunning Murrindindi Scenic Reserve. Students will get to sleep in a tent and prepare and cook their own food offsite. All transport and equipment is supplied by us along with experienced staff to guide you through the adventure.
We provide full catering including morning and afternoon teas. Our meals are prepared and cooked onsite to ensure fresh quality every time. Our menus are designed to offer a variety of selections at each meal empowering students to make food choices that meet their individual needs and tastes.
