We help young Australians realise their personal best by creating experiences in the outdoors to grow their sense of self and the core skills that will help them navigate their future.
We help students grow; we help schools perform. And we help parents enjoy more mature, independent children. From providing industry-leading pre-set courses to fully tailored, curriculum-integrated programs, we connect with schools across the country to bring education outdoors.
Founded in 1984, we employ 400+ diversely talented and experienced staff, and even have our own accredited training academy. To date, we’ve educated and cared for 2 million students (and counting).

We need your help to deliver these experiences and impact these young Australians.
