Personal Development Outcomes Personal Responsibility The course will contribute to the students’ ability to be responsible, answerable, or accountable for actions and consequences within their power or control; to maintain personal motivation levels; increased ability to complete tasks on their own.
Self-Reliance The program will contribute to increased trust in own efforts and abilities.
Environment Respect for the Environment The program will contribute to increased knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the natural environment; concern for protecting the natural environment.

The Young Explorers course will be a 5-day residential experience for the students staying in dormitories, with 1 night camping in a safe and secure campsite (note that camping is weather dependant). All the course activities will be conducted in a group, and there are wonderful opportunities for learning valuable socialization skills and meeting other kids. This is a fun and positive camp experience over school holiday periods and the students will be introduced to enironmental awareness activities via the Leave No Trace ethics – a set of principles, promoting minimum impact on the outdoors through engaging ativities. After practicing those positive behaviours in nature, the students will have a chance to become Leave No Trace ambassadors.
