A high school camp building team spirit

Survivor Camp is one of the most beneficial character-building high school camps around – and no, we don’t mean on a deserted island. Unlike the TV program, food and shelter are provided and no one gets voted off. Through exhilarating outdoor activities, this school camp for teenagers and children will teach teamwork, problem solving, leadership and resilience.

Over three action-packed days in native Queensland bushland, students form 'tribes' and work together to complete a series of themed challenges. Tribes reflect and debrief after each activity and score their performance based on teamwork, initiative, group participation, group planning and team spirit.
