Outdoor Education the Mapleton Way

Outdoor Education the Mapleton Way

Queensland Conference and Camping Centres (QCCC) Mapleton proudly takes an holistic approach to its outdoor education programs.

We have a team of highly qualified, full-time, outdoor educators whose sole purpose is to provide programs of excellence that build into the lives and programs of our guests. Because of this QCCC Mapleton cannot always match the monetary price of the other options but we will always back our safety record and the quality of our product and experience.

QCCC Mapleton has an extensive range of outdoor education focussed adventure activities for guests to enjoy.

Mapleton Centre’s programmed activities are perfect for school, corporate, youth and family groups whose goals are to have fun while challenging themselves by stepping out of their everyday environment.

Built within our spectacular rainforest setting, high on the Blackall Range, our guests enjoy a wide range of challenges and activities that promote teamwork, communication and build self confidence. Our activities are a great opportunity for people of all ages to embark on a uniquely different series of mental and physical activities that will challenge you as an individual and groups as a whole.  Our guests choose from the following activities:
  • Archery
  • Abseiling (off our own 17 metre tower)

At QCCC Mapleton you can learn firsthand the value of teamwork, cooperation, collaboration, support, and motivation, soaring to new heights with one of the most comprehensive outdoor activities programs in Queensland.

QCCC Mapleton is currently working on a concept and format for Outdoor Education that we believe will be industry-leading and will take our services to a whole new level of excellence. This is going to form the basis of our programs for many years and we plan to grow this concept to resource and partner with schools to use their camp experience as a high point of their school program – as a memorable event that instills values and develops student character far beyond the camp experience.

Our expectation is the concept we’re developing will affirm and maintain our status as the first choice for school camps. Stay tuned …
