In 1998 we had a Dream! A dream which was bold, different and unheard of for private individuals. Our dream was to build, not buy, a facility which was at it’s very core to educate. A facility that at its very being was to inspire participants to learn and grow. We do this by way of personal development through experiential, adventure-based school outdoor education programs in the natural environment. Our education centre and a business focuses on Education, Striving for Excellence and Showcasing Sustainability.

"From start to finish I saw a real growth in social and emotional learning for many students. They especially benefitted in learning team work skills and also resilience and perseverance, as many are really out of their comfort zone on camp. Friendship building was the other main benefit. They will return to school with deeper connections with each other. Thank you. "

“Excellent staff who understand adolescence very well. Provided opportunities for the girls to be challenged and to grow, to connect with others and their teachers, to develop a sense of unity and identity.”

"I enjoyed the camp very much, while I probably wouldn't do it by choice, I enjoyed the activities, as they were challenging and rewarding. Was pretty good walking on the hike with all the lads. Improved friendships that i don't normally have and it allowed me to recollect my thoughts. The hiking was a great experience and good to leap out of my comfort zone."
