Canterbury staff, in partnership with Adventure Alternatives, aim to provide positive, safe and challenging outdoor experiences for students.

The theme for this camp is Self-Awareness and our Year 8 students will work to develop a sense of ‘place’ through critical thinking and further developing their personal and social competence throughout this program.

Students are encouraged to slow down their decision-making, thereby aiding the development of critical thought processes.

Your son or daughter will be required to bring specific equipment for the camp, and it is imperative that they bring ALL the required items listed on the portal below.

As weather conditions can be variable, it is particularly important that suitable weatherproof clothing is packed, as the program will continue during inclement conditions.

To help us prepare for your son’s or daughter’s experience, an online portal has been prepared below.

The following link will take you to the Adventure Alternatives website, where you will be able to register, and provide any of your son’s or daughter’s medical and dietary needs prior to the program commencing.

In addition, it provides some background information on the program and other requirements.
