Let’s go! 


Why go on group adventure trips?

Group adventure trips offer many benefits beyond just exploring new landscapes. They’re an opportunity to:

Bond with your group: Shared experiences forge deep connections and often lead to lasting friendships. While you may know some members of the group already, a group adventure trip brings you all a lot closer!


Build confidence: Overcoming challenges together creates a sense of accomplishment, boosting self-esteem and resilience.

Develop leadership skills: Taking on different roles within the group encourages leadership development and teamwork.

Connect with nature: There’s no better way to disconnect from the digital world and reconnect with the natural one.

Learn new skills: Whether it’s navigating forest trails or mastering outdoor cooking, adventure trips are ripe with opportunities for skill-building.


How to plan a group trip 


Outline your goals

Before diving into the details, take a moment to outline your goals for the trip. Are you seeking adrenaline-pumping activities to strengthen teamwork? Or maybe you’re after serene nature spots for a cosy family reunion? Perhaps a top-notch sporting location is what your team needs? Understanding your group’s desires will steer your planning process in the right direction, ensuring you hit the mark with your objectives.


Choose a destination

Selecting the right destination sets the tone for your adventure. Consider factors such as the season, terrain, and accessibility. We have three camps for groups that offer brilliant facilities and accommodations to make your visit a bit more special. 

Check out the individual camp pages for more information: 

PGL Campaspe Downs (VIC), PGL Camp Rumbug (VIC) and PGL Camp Kindilan (QLD).

Whether it’s hiking through lush rainforests, or trekking across expansive bushland, there’s a location to suit every group’s preferences.


Plan activities

Now comes the fun part – planning the activities that will make your adventure trip truly unforgettable! You might choose to go out and see local landmarks, or opt to stay together and undertake some group activities. Below is a selection of some of the adventurous activities available for your group at PGL:

Create a Packing Checklist

Packing can make or break an adventure trip for your group, so it’s essential to be prepared. Create a comprehensive checklist that covers everything from camping gear and outdoor attire to first aid supplies and toiletries. Don’t forget the essentials like sunscreen, insect repellent, and reusable water bottles. 

See our helpful group adventure packing list guide for more information. 


Don’t Forget Health & Safety!

While adventure is about pushing boundaries, safety should always be a top priority. Familiarise yourself with the area’s emergency services, contacts, safety protocols and Code of Conduct. As a member of the Australian Camps Association, PGL undertakes Essential Safety Measures compliance annually, which ensures that our adventure camps are well-maintained and safe for all participants.
