High School


Year 7 Orientation

Have your students just turned up in the big, wide world of high school? Are they looking lost like a fish out of water? Do you normally run an orientation program to help those young students fit into your school? Why not bring them to Great Aussie Bush Camp instead!

So many schools already use our orientation programs to help Year 7 students. This is because camp is such a wonderful place to begin developing positive relationships and fostering the right kind of attitudes in the students themselves. Camp is a neutral environment where every student is on equal footing, it is a place that only works when positive teamwork is employed.
Bring the students along as fresh individuals and by the time they leave they'll walk away as a cohesive group.

Year 7 Peer Support

Many schools already use our Peer Support programs to compliment their current 'in school programs'. This is because camp is such a wonderful place to begin developing positive relationships and fostering the right kind of attitudes in the students themselves. So why not bring them to The Great Aussie Bush Camp instead!

Our Peer Support Camps offer Peer Support Leaders the opportunity to establish a rapport with their groups and to develop and implement leadership skills. Year 7 students are able to develop friendships, group cohesion, enhance their self esteem and identify with their Peer Support Leaders and Peer Group. The Peer Support Camp also establishes positive Teacher/Student relations in a fun and exciting manner.

So bring the new Year 7's along and get to know them in a way that you can't in the classroom.
