From the very first phone call or meeting, ALI will be taking your desired aims and objectives into consideration when designing your program. Each program/camp we run is uniquely different to meet each school’s needs. Whether it is a geography field trip, outdoor education program, leadership course, ski or snowboard trip or retreat each camp is designed to meet your specific needs.
You can choose between a centre based program or a journey based program, with a combination of activities to suit your desired outcome for your students. Programs and activities can be based at our accommodation centre (Bungarra Alpine Centre), expedition based run in the Kosciusko National Park or a combination of both.
Sequential Outdoor Education Programs
In close consultation with key staff members at your school, a sequential outdoor education program is developed based on a clear set of aims and objectives.
It is a program that recognises the need for different outdoor education experiences, locations and providers.
It allows schools to develop a holistic approach to outdoor education and can be written for years 4 through to 12.
Numerous schools use the ALI site for school retreats. Jindabyne is a great place for reflection, refinement and planning for the future. Schools use our site for spiritual retreats, leadership retreats for Yrs 11 and 12 and peer support training and development.
ALI will custom design your retreat based on your desired outcome for students. We specialise in the facilitation of initiative and team building activities, personal and leadership development. Should your school wish to run its own program and activities, we can provide accommodation and meals and as much or as little support as you desire.
School Ski trips
Packaged snow trips are offered for groups of 20 – 170 students from 2 – 7 days in duration. These trips are designed to allow students to experience skiing or snowboarding downhill in resort or cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in the back-country with their school friends and peers.
Experienced ALI staff ensure that all aspects of the trip are covered from lift tickets, lessons, gear and equipment. Packages can be designed to include syllabus content.
Peer Support Programs and Leadership programs
ALI can assist you in the training of peer support leaders or help your school facilitate your own program by providing accommodation and meals.
Year 12 can be an overwhelming experience. A leadership program helps year 11 students moving into year 12 understand their roles and responsibilities as leaders of the school. We can help with our tailored leadership programs looking at what makes a good leader, and your schools expectations of leaders. We can facilitate great teambuilding and initiatives to develop problem solving skills, self confidence, group dynamics and their own qualities and skills as they strive to become future leaders. The ultimate goal is to help them leave Bungarra with their own ‘bag of tricks’ equipping them to become leaders of the school.
