Outdoor Education

Sunshine Coast Grammar School offers an excellent outdoor education program for its students.

Camps which make up the outdoor education program comprise an increasing level of challenge as the student matures and are designed to complement the academic and social development of students. Additionally, these camps endeavour to promote qualities of self-reliance, initiative, cooperation, confidence, leadership and the capacity to deal with significant emotional and physical challenges.

Relationships between students and between staff and students are enhanced, as are individuals’ self-esteem and confidence. Most importantly, all of these objectives are achieved in a safe and fun environment.

All outdoor activities are achieved in a safe and fun environment.

Camps endeavour to promote qualities of self-reliance, initiative, cooperation, confidence, leadership and the capacity to deal with significant emotional and physical challenges.
