Welcome to The Outdoor Education Group
Our purpose is to make learning outdoors accessible to all young people.
Founded in 1984, The Outdoor Education Group is an independent organisation that provides outdoor education and recreation experiences for tens of thousands of participants each year. The Outdoor Education Group custom-designs programs to suit our client’s requirements, from fully resourced journey-based school outdoor education programs to centre-based camps suitable for all school and community groups. Our ‘not for profit’ status is central to our work as it enables us to offer excellent value, support worthy projects and invest in improving our participant’s experience in the outdoors.
We believe in the power of experiential learning in the outdoors because it is:
Meaningful – real, applied learning and experiences with purpose, actions and consequences.
Memorable – the experience stands out and stays with you for life. It is fun yet challenging.
Character Building – it enables individuals to recognise there is more to themselves and others than they realised. It improves and builds upon an individual’s strengths.
Transferable – learning life skills to apply in multiple situations and settings. It equips individuals to thrive throughout life.
We achieve this through a firm belief in our values of respect and taking responsibility for self, others and the natural world.
