School camps to inspire your students 

Looking for the perfect mix of adventure, fun and learning for school students? PGL offers dedicated school camps tailored to the learning requirements of primary and secondary school children. Our activities and challenges are designed to link in with Australian school curriculums, giving your group maximum educational value in addition to an amazing adventure packed full of memories. 

Our R.E.A.C.H framework helps pupils of primary and secondary school ages achieve their learning outcomes. Outdoor learning and student development go hand-in-hand, and the R.E.A.C.H Framework focuses on five key pillars of learning to help you achieve this:

  • Relationships
  • Experiences
  • Ability
  • Character
  • Health & wellbeing

We’ve listened to what learning outcomes matter to schools and pupils. And, with our new R.E.A.C.H. framework we’ve designed outdoor adventures that spark these breakthroughs.

Our R.E.A.C.H framework tailors programs across both primary school and secondary school learning, providing age-appropriate activities and learning outcomes for your students.

Does a PGL camp for my school consider the new Victorian Schools Government Agreement 2022?

Each activity session is led by a dedicated PGL instructor who is professionally trained to coordinate and lead pupils during their tasks. This provides the highest levels of safety possible and takes the pressure off teachers during these hours. It also allows schools an opportunity to invite parent helpers to attend camp in the place of teachers. Check our blog post on the VGSA 2022 agreement for more information on how PGL can help your school.

Can I coordinate the itinerary to meet the learning requirements of my group?

All of our camps for schools are bespoke to the learning objectives you wish to meet during your stay.  Your Customer Relations Consultant will discuss your desired learning outcomes with you before your camp so that we can ensure we provide a program to meet these objectives. 

Our R.E.A.C.H Framework is a great place to start when looking at learning outcomes for primary and secondary school students, as these programs have been specially designed to meet the learning requirements at each developmental stage.

What facilities does the accommodation have?

Each of our three campsites caters perfectly for school groups, with slight variations across each venue. All students are housed in comfortable, multi-share rooms, either with ensuite facilities or with toilet and shower facilities nearby. Teachers are generally accommodated in single, twin or triple rooms with ensuite accommodation, with bedding provided. Whichever camp you stay at, we ensure that you and your school group will be comfortable.
