Covid Safe School Camp QueenslandThere's always a nervous anticipation when you start something "new", which was really what it was like last week when we re-opened for schools with Covid-Safe operations. So we were really chuffed to get this feedback on how we went. It was so good to bring the students to Mapleton last week. I was not sure we would have the opportunity to do so this year, so while there were many differences in this camp to the format we are used to, it was wonderful to be there and some of the changes turned out to be highly valued. That is especially the case with the Triballink programs and I have already had conversations with the administration about retaining that component for next year's camp program.

Outdoor Education Schools QueenslandOver the last few years the traditional activities of Outdoor Education have become mainstream commercial activities.  It’s possible to fly a zipline in a shopping centre, clamber over a high ropes course on an individual double carabiner setup or scale climbing walls with nothing more than the assistance of an automatic belay system.  Activities are getting bigger, better, longer and some of our competitors have installed similar options because it’s cheaper, less labour intensive and allows larger participant to staff ratios.  Some climbing walls even offer strobe lights and blaring disco music.

Sequential School Camp ProgramsThe concept of “sequential school camp” programs have established a foothold in the consciousness of many schools over the last decade.  With a lot of schools running camping programs from Grade 3 right through to Year 12 it can be a mammoth task to find an operator capable of offering a program with sufficient variety and quality.  No two schools are the same and each school wants different outcomes and has different needs.
