How exactly does outdoor education work? And how do we design a student trip that challenges, enriches, and teaches? The answer is simple: participatory learning, site visits, and field school!
Our goal is not just to get children out into the great outdoors, but to instill in them respect for the environment and encourage them to positively impact the world around them.
We have developed a sequential programme for students aged 7 – 18 based on Curriculum Guidelines from Outdoor Education Australia. The programme gives students a broad range of critical outdoor and personal development skills, ranging from health and environmental management to conservation and culture.
Each year, we build on core areas and offer certification for individual students after successfully completing each stage, through our Adventure Passport Programme. In this way, schools are able to deliver well-structured outdoor education and adventure trips in different locations.
Ten Steps To Quality Outdoor Education
All of our trips are guided by the Outdoor Council’s 10 Step Positive Outcomes model.
