Active Wilderness Program

We have a focus on walking from Class 4 all the way to Year 10, when all students in Year 10 complete the famous Overland Track in Tasmania. By Year 12, the five day Solo Camp is the culmination of the school's active wilderness program. The main component of the Year 12 Solo camp for the students is spending 30 hours by themselves in the bush. This experience requires both mental and practical independence and provides wonderful preparation for participating in society in a resourceful way.


Outdoor and Environmental Education Co-ordinator

Glenaeon’s Outdoor and Environmental Education Co-ordinator, Scottie William’s aim is to change every students expectation of a 'school camp' from something regular to something unforgettable, sometimes even life changing. Scottie inspires students to sleep under the stars, see the beauty in trees and bees, and stretch themselves beyond the everyday.
