Outdoor Education

At TAS, students can develop the essential life skills of resilience, leadership, teamwork and self-responsibility in the safe, yet challenging, learning environment of the inspiring sequential outdoor education program. The program provides students with strategies to develop honesty, empathy and self-reflection, while living healthy and sustainable lives. These attributes are highly valued by employers, tertiary institutions and all sectors of society.

The setting for the program is the diverse yet beautiful natural environment of far North Queensland. This spectacular backdrop provides all participants with a direct relationship with the natural world, fostering a depth of understanding that is critical to making educated and informed decisions about the future of the planet. With youth obesity, mental illness and screen time on the rise, the outdoor education program provides a viable and healthy experience for TAS students. The program provides personal challenges, encourages participation, fosters leadership skills and develops traits of community responsibility, cooperation, resourcefulness, resilience and communication. Quite simply – it is so much more than a CAMP.

The TAS Outdoor Education Program is recognised as one of the best of its kind in Australia and is unique in its scope and duration as students from Year 2 to Year 12 participate in a range of new and exciting educational experiences. These experiences range from a ‘first time away from home’ experience in Year 2 to the flagship program, ‘the Year 9 Journey’, of 18 days duration.

A select group of Year 10 students at TAS can further develop their interest in outdoor education by enrolling in the Outdoor Recreation Program, an in-depth course where students focus on a range of outdoor pursuits to develop their personal, outdoor and leadership skills.
