Let us guide your students in discovering their own backyard
To best prepare young people for success in an ever-evolving future, skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity are essential. Outdoor education influences young people's preparedness for this future by building and harnessing vital skills to ensure they are real world ready. Our metro journeys allow students to discover more than they know about themselves. Journeys created for metro areas grow core skills through outdoor education while discovering locations close to home.
Working together in a group, dealing directly with concepts such as leadership, followership and inclusivity, our metro journeys allow students to develop crucial core skills. Expand your student's world-view and help them understand they are capable of more than they know by introducing one of our metro journeys today.
Most suitable for young people aged 11 – 18 years old, our metro journeys allow your students to explore easily accessible local parks and nature reserves in a metropolitan environment. With minimal travel time, your students have more time to discover and develop new skills. Our Metro Journeys range from 2 to 5 days in length and can include cycling, canoeing and bushwalking.
