Choosing A Great School Camp for Outdoor Education
Schools camps are valuable collaborators for schools when it comes to the education of children. Adventures in the outdoors facilitate better social interaction, instill confidence and help students to see learning in a new light.
By: Beyond the Classroom
Beyond the Classroom (BTC) is aware of the vital role of positive experiences for a child well-being and progress, so here are some ideas on finding a great school camp.
How to Choose a School Camp
Parents do well to check that their child's "home" for the next few days are run by competent and certified professionals who have years of experience.
BTC has worked with many schools in South Australia. Our instructors and advisers for outdoor education have undergone certification training. Moreover, they are trained in first aid and in other safety measures which are related to teaching others on skills or guiding them in using outdoor equipment.
Deciding on camp locations
An operator's thorough knowledge of outdoor adventure locations make it easier to plan and anticipate changes in logistics and operating the event or camp.
BTC's partner camps are located in areas which specialise in certain activities. Thus for example, we have mountain biking in Flinders Ranges, or kayaking in Coorong National Park. This way students and camp participants are able to focus more on team building and learning, and less on travelling.
However, if a school requests so, we can also just have activities at a pre-arranged venue only.
Why Go on a School Camp
As mentioned, school camps instill confidence, refine problem solving skills, create occasions for social interaction and boost a sense of teamwork, and foster self reliance. The wide range of activities ensures everyone spends time creating memories, without the stress of organising.
Best timetable for a Camp
Well-organised camps and camp operators can usually run school camp options the whole year. For example, most camps will have the schools spoilt for choice as it is possible to arrange snorkelling in Port Noarlunga when it is warmer, or organise a hike in the Heysen Trail when it starts to get cooler.
Lastly, schools have our assurance that BTC always considers existing government protocols and guidelines for everyone's general safety.
