Going on camp for grades 3 to 6 is about fun and learning basic routines! We create a fun learning environment where students will develop responsibility through organising themselves and their group, being on time, group awareness, team work and basic motor skill development.Students are made aware of rules and then expected to adhere to them. They learn about decision and consequence through the basic structures within the camp. These are memorable camps that have been so successful, that they have instigated changes within entire school leadership cultures.
Leadership is the art of deliberately exerting influence on a group of people to move them toward goals of beneficial permanence. This is the premise on which we base our senior school camps. We utilise decision making activities, endurance activities and adventure activities throughout the camp to build resilience in students which stands them in good stead for the pressures of grade 12, university and the work force. These camps are designed to push students past their self-perceived limits and ends with ALL students realising just how much they have developed over the camp. Ideal for selecting senior position holders from yr 11 for the following year, these camps are a must as a part of your school leadership continuum.
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.
Murphys Creek Adventures specialises in catering for Adventure Based Youth organisations such as Cadets, Guides and Scouts. Our exstensive background in navigation, roping and bush craft activities such as: shelter construction, camp cooking, fire making, sanitation in the field, water purification, snares and traps, all compliment our purpose built facility when instructing adventure based youth organisations.
Our Youth are our future and it is for this reason that Murphy’s Creek Adventures focus very heavily on Youth Development. We have developed specialised camp and day trip programs for children with high and low care needs catering for children with disabilities and those with challenging behaviours. Some of our modified adventure activities include our flying fox, achery program and abseiling.
