MULTI – ACTIVITY DAY – OYSTERHAVEN
A full day of action and fun as students experience a range of both water sports activities and land based team challenges focussed on personal development and working together as a team.
Students receive tuition in single and double kayaks as paddling skills are developed, enjoy a game of fast and furious kayak polo and take on our ‘moonwalk’. Our inflatable rafts demand co-operation and leadership as the teams co-ordinate their strokes to spin and race their rafts around the bay.
Students also enjoy the infamous Jungle Quest where they negotiate rope bridges, crocodile crossings and scramble net as together they negotiate the challenges of water and mud in an atmosphere of laughter and teamwork. Students will have to pay half the cost of this course.
