School Program Examples

Full & Multi Day School Programs

If in the Portland Area half, full or multi day programs work well. Accommodation is available for up to 130 at Cape Bridgewater Coastal Camp.

All activities are within a 20 minute drive of this camp. Some are within walking distance; beach, abseiling, seal walk & the spectacular Great South West Walk coastal walking track.

Great South West Walk

One school program we assist with has two groups of approximately 25 year 10 students. The groups begin in Portland and head in opposite directions on the GSWW. The journey consists of the walking on the GSWW, mountain biking along forest tracks near the GSWW, canoeing 3 days along the Glenelg River near the GSWW and a half day horse riding and walking a beach section of the GSWW.

Other operators on the area provide horse riding, surfing and seal tours via boat that can be made part of your school program.

Full Day of orienteering in the Lower Glenelg National Park

The group begins at the same location. One half walks on the GSWW and the other half rides forest tracks on mountain bikes. Following clues they find and solving brain teasers along the way. The groups meet for lunch and swap modes of transport for the second half of the day.

Half Day School Programs

Half day (or shorter) activities include caving, rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, mountain biking, walking, orienteering and rock pool rambles, a one hour yoga session run at your camp.

Two or more activities can run consecutively. Eg caving and canoeing could run in the morning and the groups swap after lunch.
