At Korowa, camping begins in Year 2 with a school sleepover and older girls camp outdoors for more extended periods each year.
Outdoor Education is an important part of the overall education of students at Korowa. The sequential program is planned and run by Korowa staff working in close association with the Outdoor Education Group (OEG), a private company of specialist educators.
Outdoor Education provides girls with a range of activities outside their usual environment, so that they learn to face challenges in an atmosphere which requires self-reliance and independence. As students work in small groups they also further develop their co-operative group skills and tolerance. The activities undertaken encourage them to use their initiative and to take responsibility for their own and the group's actions.
The one-month Korowa Trek offered to Year 9 girls is a highlight of the School's Outdoor Education program.
