Over 75% of schools in Australia have integrated school camps into their yearly curriculum activities and recent research has revealed that student’s psychological wellbeing and emotional balance is greater due to their participation and involvement in the school camps.
The News today is terrifying, everyday there’s something more horrendous than the previous, from abductions, to attacks, multiple shootings, and the never-ending string of environmental disasters… it just never stops. These devastating events are the harsh reality of the world we live in and it’s no coincidence that parents have cracked down.
Each year, children are sent off to school camps; often for 2-3 nights or even potentially up to a week, to give them a break from the classroom and to let them have fun while developing important social skills that will help them in life. Schools put a big emphasis on these camps as they can teach students valuable life lessons and skills that they wouldn’t be able to learn in the classroom.
