Expeditions are a wonderful way to challenge students beyond their comfort zones. By taking on these challenges students work with peers and staff to develop life skills leading to independence and resilience.
If your School implements the Duke of Edinburgh Program, or, you have adventurous students willing to extend their comfort zones through exploration and discovery, why not utilise the experience and expertise of Blackwood Special Schools Outdoor Education Centre Staff and participate in an Base Camp Expedition experience.
If you'd like to slowly introduce your students to Expeditioning and camping in the bush, or, fully challenge your students through rugged terrain over a number of nights, Blackwood Special Schools Outdoor Education Centre is able to help you achieve your aim.
