SCHOOL & GROUP PROGRAMS  (Please call for prices)

Rockclimbing/Abseiling

An ideal activity for challenging students and developing their self confidence.  We offer half and full day trips to a range of climbing sites in the You Yangs, Staughtonvale, and Werribee Gorge.  Multi-day trips to the Grampians or Mt. Arapiles are also available.

All climbing gear (including climbing shoes) is provided.

Mountain Bike Tours

A fun activity for all ages, abilities and fitness levels..  Our tours run at a variety of venues, including the Barwon River trail in Geelong, in and around Torquay and forest rides near Anglesea. We will tailor your ride according to the group’s age, experience and fitness level.  Half and full day programs are available.  We can also bring the bikes to you if you have a suitable bike path or riding area near you.

High or Low Ropes Course / Initiative Activities

Students work in teams to progress through a series of challenging and fun activities.  Ideal for developing self esteem, trust, communication, teamwork, leadership and initiative, as well as being great fun!

They will enjoy the personal challenge and realise the importance of working together as they progress around the course from one station to the next.

Raft Building

Raft building is a great activity for developing communication, teamwork and initiative, as well as being great fun!  We are fully mobile and can conduct this activity pretty much anywhere there is a body of water, such as a dam, river, lake or protected beach.

Bodyboarding

Great fun and very safe, with success guaranteed for everyone.  Can be combined with a surf safety talk to properly prepare students for safe swimming and playing in the surf.

Beach Olympics or Mini Surf Carnival

A fantastic activity for a day at the beach or surf camp.  Everyone participates with the main emphasis on having FUN.  Activities include beach flags, paddling, swimming and running races, iron person events, chariot races and more.

Snorkelling

A fantastic activity for the warmer months (term 1 is the most popular). We dive at one of several sites in the Bay or along the Surfcoast and Bellarine Peninsula. These shore dives abound with marine life and are ideal for both beginners and those with some experience. Wetsuits, hoods, masks, snorkels and fins are provided.

Rockpool Rambles

A fun and educational activity. Students will learn about rock platform marine life and environmental issues affecting the coast. Ideal for both primary and secondary school students.

Coastal & Forest Walks

We will teach your group about the area’s local history, fauna and flora while guiding them along one of the many spectacular walks on the Surfcoast.

Spectacular ocean views, coastal heathland, ironbark forests, secluded beaches and more.

WE WILL WORK WITH YOU TO DESIGN A PROGRAM THAT IS BEST SUITED TO YOUR STUDENTS’ NEEDS.
