Dunn's Swamp challenge
The ‘Dunn's Swamp Challenge' is a one or two day excursion where students participate in team building activities, meant to strengthen leadership skills and enhance student relationships. They will move around a course with the aid of a Global Positioning System (GPS), communicating via ultra high frequency radio. Problem solving and teamwork are emphasized throughout the challenge, namely, negotiating around a pre-determined course, administering first aid to team members in life simulating scenarios; building and implementing a viable, floating rescue craft out of polypipe and rope.
If participating in a 2 day excursion, camping, bush-cooking, bushwalking and canoeing activities are also experienced. Students set up and pack up camp and experience bushwalking and canoeing expeditions.
