This course is run as a SACE Integrated Study which is worth 10 SACE credits. Students develop skills in leadership, self-reliance, group and risk management. They also learn the technical skills in planning and preparing for a 2 day bushwalking expedition to Mount Crawford Forest. The students will focus on learning outdoor living skills, safe use of lightweight stoves, tent pitching, menu planning, minimal impact camping techniques, team building activities, group dynamics and basic navigation.
By participating in these activities, students develop specialised skills in bushwalking and reflect on their personal, group and social development. They will also develop a greater appreciation for the natural environment.
Additional Costs/Information: This subject will cost $30 to cover the cost of the equipment hire, camping fees, excursion fees and transport (but does not include the cost of food for the camps, students will be responsible for purchasing their own food). Students will need to provide their own sleeping bag, rain jacket/poncho and walking bag (school bag is fine, this is a base camp set up).
