7 ACTIVITIES Bushwalking Bushwalking is the original outdoor educational activity and still one of the best today. Bushwalking programs facilitate self-reliance, resilience and patience. The pace of students lives will slow down and it teaches them that not everything in this world is instant and that the process of the journey is important and enjoyable. Students gain a respect for the land and an appreciation of the environment whilst learning practical transferable skills such as map reading and navigation. Page 7 of 8
