Benefits for students

The students learn practical and leadership skills, a love of the bush and how to care for it; they grow in self confidence, fitness, and endurance; they have meaningful personal encounters with people beyond their usual sphere of contact; and they may experience times and places where they can reflect on their own destinies. Students remember trips long after the minutiae of the classroom has been forgotten. Students able to experience extended periods concentrating on outdoor education pursuits at a country campus often note the profound influence of these experiences.
