"You Can Do It": 

The five 'keys to success' Confidence, Persistence, Organisation, Getting Along and Emotional Resilience are supported.

Real Life Learning: 

Emphasis is placed on the transfer of learnings from our learning environment to other life contexts.

Sustainable Living: 

Experiences in outdoor environments provide opportunities for learners to question their personal lifestyle choices and their commitment to environmental sustainability.

Self Awareness Activities: 

Problem based learning fosters opportunities, within a range of novel outdoor learning environments, for learners to critically evaluate how their actions influence themselves, other group members and the environment.

Supportive Environment: Social support and trust are incorporated in learning opportunities to ensure the physical and emotional safety of learners.
