Through the study of three focus areas — environment and conservation; planning and management; and personal and social growth and development — students develop skills and understanding in preparation and planning for outdoor experiences, risk management, and conservation practices, and develop their teamwork and practical outdoor skills.
The learning experiences that take place in a variety of locations are intended to enable students to develop an appreciation of their place in, and their impact on, environments. As they spend time learning in natural environments, students develop knowledge and apply planning and risk-management skills for outdoor journeys that ensures they travel safely. They also apply these skills to plan for minimal impact as they move through natural environments.
