Bushwalking is an excellent tool for outdoor leaders to help students learn teamwork, communication and problem solving skills. This course will provide (or give you a chance to refresh) the skills and knowledge required to guide a group of bushwalkers on overnight hike. It has been designed to provide opportunities for experienced leaders to move through the course quickly, or for beginning leaders to be able to take the time to consolidate their skills before assessment.

As with all of our courses we pay special attention to how this activity can be used educationally by paying specific attention to teaching strategies, active reflection methods and how to help your group members transfer their learning to everyday life.

The course is run over 2 days and covers:

  • overnight camping skills
  • navigation
  • bushwalking skills
  • group management
  • teaching and reflection strategies
