Middle Rock – Northern NSW
This Camp provides students the opportunity to connect with natural landscapes while growing their understanding and experience of comfort zones and supportive friendships. Themes they have been working on throughout Year 7 pastoral care programs.
The Camp is founded upon the Crew approach, where every girl is encouraged through circle-based conversations and problem-based activities, to share, connect and begin to create those fundamental relationship building qualities with their peers and teachers. Spending this time away from their families is vital to begin forging those connects as a new community.
Activities have an element of selection for students of all abilities and may include;, surfing and snorkeling, sand boarding, marine wild-life cruise, 4wd tour. All students will engage in service projects connecting people with rehabilitation of coastal habitats and cultural experiences looking at landscapes through the practice of song-lines.

They will be re-establishing their community connection as year 8s whilst having fun in and exploring the beautiful coastline of the Mornington Peninsula.

Students choose to participate in either Trek or Urban Challenge for their Term 4 Experience.
This unique and iconic four week point to point wilderness adventure celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2019 and this year we will reach an incredible 1000 Korovians having participated in the program. Organised and led by the Outdoor Education Group (OEG), and accompanied by a number of experienced Korovian group leaders, students learn to be self-sufficient campers as they venture by foot, bike and raft from the Victorian Alps to Ninety Mile Beach. There is a strong focus on what it takes to maintain a strong, supportive and successful community through change, challenge and celebration. Trek develops self esteem, confidence, leadership and interpersonal skills as students learn to manage their emotional responses to difficult and stressful situations. Trek often shapes the lives of our students, far beyond their years and experiences at Korowa.
Over three weeks, students explore some of the key social justice issues affecting urban Melbourne, and other regional areas in Victoria whilst experiencing community life in their own small groups. Urban Challenge caters for a wide range of skills and abilities and allows students to find appropriate levels of personal challenge and build mental toughness.
