OUR CAMP PROGRAMS: TAILORING IT YOUR WAY
Whether you would like to improve class communication, strengthen students’ team-building capabilities, overcome obstacles or tackle bullying issues, our friendly and experienced Office of Sport program team will work with you to best support your school’s objectives and needs with exciting and challenging activities and experiences.
When your school books a school camp with the Office of Sport, our team will ask you about your focus objectives, rather than just the activities you are interested in. This allows our program team at each of our 10 sport and rec centres to design a tailor-made program to suit your student’s needs. All of our activities can be facilitated in a variety of ways to focus on specific outcomes.
Not sure where to start? A solution to this is our signature program ROAR (Relationships, Outdoors, Physical Activity and Resilience) which is adapted for both primary and secondary school students and is able to be further customised to best meet your school’s focus objectives.
