Outdoor Classrooms

Outdoor Education is an integral component of the Scotch College curriculum, offering students the opportunity to enjoy Australia’s unique outdoor life, while nurturing respect for the environment and enhancing key life skills.

Outdoor Education can be chosen as a subject at Year 11 and 12 level where the link between outdoor activities, health and environment is a key focus. Students also learn to develop and apply risk and safety management skills and responsibility for themselves and other members of a group.

 

Camps

Camps are a part of the curriculum at each year level with Outdoor Education offered as an elective subject in Years 11 and 12.

Each camp builds on the skills and experiences obtained as students’ progress through the program. Emphasis is on resilience, teamwork, leadership, group dynamics, sustainability, and environmental awareness in addition to practical living skills such as cooking, shopping, and planning. Familiarisation days are run prior to camps to ensure students are fully prepared for the experience.

Students keep a progressive, reflective journal during each camp which is presented to the students upon graduation as a highly valued memoire of their experience.

A sense of responsibility for the environment is fundamental to our outdoor education curriculum. Scotch focuses on places that have an impact to enable students to intrinsically understand the need for environmental protection and a sustainable future.

Our camps are managed by Scotch staff, in conjunction with several industry leading external providers, to further enhance positive relationships between our students and staff.

 

Outdoor Classrooms

Beyond camps and Outdoor Education, Scotch College has 2 wonderful outdoor classrooms that provide a rich and varied learning experience for all the children: the Ag Farm on the Torrens Park Campus and Goose Island in the Spencer Gulf.
