SONY DSC Enjoying the great outdoors!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The key life skills of teamwork, communication, decision making, taking responsibility, trust and fun are all developed at Somerset House in our Outdoor Education Programme. Grade 2 – 7s will normally have one camp away from school each year.

The cost of the Outdoor Education Programme is included in the school fees.

The level of “self-sufficiency” and the number of nights away increase with each grade and a wide variety of experiences will have been enjoyed by the time Grade 7 is reached. Our Grade 6 programme includes an outdoor camping adventure in preparation for Grade 7 which includes a journey down the Orange River. Some of our camps link with the curriculum and we use our venues as bases from which to explore the local area.
