Morning, Noon or Night - anytime is a great time to sit around the campfire for a chat, song, skit, joke or an opportunity to relax as you stare into the flames of a fire and become captivated by the moment.
Enjoy a campfire anywhere while at Blackwood. At your campsite, on a bushwalk, at a lake or by the river - relax, converse and simply immerse yourself in the atmosphere of life around a campfire. Laugh with friends as you tell funny stories, great jokes or sing songs in the comfort of a campfire. Reflect on what you have experienced, over-come and achieved by immersing yourself in everything that is Blackwood Special Schools Outdoor Education Centre.
This maybe a rare, or even a first time, opportunity for students to experience and enjoy the ambiance of a campfire, perhaps with a toasted marshmallow, damper, jaffles or even chocolate bananas. Add to the experience of Blackwood Special Schools Outdoor Education Centre by including a campfire opportunity.
