Camps and Outdoor Learning

Walford’s camp and outdoor learning program allows students to be engaged in practical and active learning experiences in a natural environment. Students develop their personal resourcefulness, resilience and cooperation skills as they undertake group challenges, try new activities and step out of their comfort zones in new and different environments. Camps and outdoor learning experiences increase in challenge as students move through year levels.
