Middle School Camps

 

The students will attempt adventure based activities such as abseiling, canoeing, flying fox and team initiatives. These activities compliment our camp structure which is centred on making the students responsible for themselves and each other. Morning routines consisting of dorm inspections, chores and meal preparation, put the students under pressure to be organised and work together in a communal environment.

Residential Camps:

Loads of learning and fun in one location. No need for travel coordination or tracking the where-abouts of students, our residential camps work to a set timeline for each activity as students learn about themselves, their peers and the outdoors. Our residential camps are a great introduction to adventurous learning where comfortable dorm style accommodation is complimented by a healthy menu and a wide range of individual and group development activities. Residential camps are conducted at both the Murphys Creek Adventures facility and our Noosa camp location.

 

Residential camps are suitable for Primary and Middle Schools and include the following activities:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wilderness Camps:

Ideal for middle and senior schools! Leave the comfort of the dorms and establish your tent camp before you embark on a series of challenging adventure activities. You will even prepare your own wholesome meals. We are starting to take the 'cotton wool' off here as students embark on 3 to 5 days of adventurous learning. The format builds resilience, team work, trust and morale as students complete each leg of this exciting camp. We combat ‘learnt helplessness’, by allowing the students to make decisions for themselves and complete basic routines such as cooking, cleaning, establishing camps, planning, navigating and more, with minimal interjection from our staff or teachers when students are exhibiting perceived helplessness. Before long, students start thinking for themselves both individually and collectively, amazing themselves and their teachers at just how independent, resilient and cohesive they have become.

 

Ample quantities of fresh, healthy food are provided for each group to prepare their own meals, under supervision of our staff. Freedom for creativity and flare is provided as students lose their culinary inhibitions by the second day, producing some fantastic meals. You will observe excellent learning outcomes through this camp structure alone, but when you add our professional, consistent facilitators and our desire to challenge every student, we guarantee the beginnings of life change for the majority of participants.
