The Great Aussie Bush Camp's two sites at Tea Gardens and Kincumber offer a huge range of on-site and off-site activities that can be tailored to your requirements. All of the activities are designed to be challenging, yet fun and include the traditional favourites such as our high ropes courses, survivor challenges and giant swings.
Whilst no two activities are the same, our activities can be classified into five separate areas:
While Tea Gardens and Kincumber share a number of similar activities, some, like the Power Fan, are unique to one location. The difference in both the geography and the layout of our two camp sites means that even those activities that are similar, feel fresh and new to students who may have already visited one of our sites. Here's a quick overview of the acitivities available at both locations.
Tea Gardens Activities
With over 40 separate on-site activities on offer and a range of off-site excursions in the vicinity, our natural bush setting at Tea Gardens has plenty of options to cover a wide variety of educational and experience requirements. Amongst the favourite activities across all age groups at Tea Gradens, are our dual flying fox, which traverses our own on-site lake, our giant swing, giant slide and towering climbing walls. Of course there's lots of other activities to choose from at Tea Gardens that are designed to get the excitement going for students and teachers alike, without leaving the ground! Our team challenges, survivor courses, canoeing and sailing to name a few are all immensely popular.
Kincumber has a wide range of activities to suit every age group from primary right through to secondary. With the beautiful Broadwater right on our doorstep, water activities at Kincumber are quickly becoming a favourite amongst students and teachers alike. For those who like high adventure and adrenalin rushes, our new two-person 'power fan' and fantastic 'double giant swing' are really unique. It's twice the fun because you get the chance to experience the thrill with one of your mates.
Of course we also cater to primary students with high ropes courses, abseiling and climbing walls that are still challenging but more age appropriate. These activities are perfectly suited to the skill and development levels of younger students.
We want students and teachers alike to get the most out of every camp as possible and we know that learning through experience is a great way to do this. That's why each activity is designed to specifically challenge students in a different way. Some activities are designed to instill confidence at heights, some are designed to promote more positive teamwork skills and others build coordination.
All activities, however, are different and the effect upon each student will depend on the individual way they interact with the activity. All of the activities at camp are operated on the 'Challenge by Choice' principle. That means each individual chooses how much they participate in the activity and ultimately how much they are challenged.
