We connect people with each other in nature and to discover, or rediscover, their full potential. 

Held at Mylor Adventure Camp, Wirraway Homestead and rural and remote locations in South Australia and Victoria, our group expeditions help young people build resilience and self-confidence while supporting initiatives such as health and wellbeing interventions and programs for disengaged youth, social justice, faith development, environmental learning, and conservation. 

Group Expeditions

Whether you want a day program or multi-day stays, we can plan and tailor an expedition program to support your learning outcomes. 

With a range of fully facilitated activities delivered by our fully qualified staff in a safe and supportive environment, our expeditions encourage students to connect with nature and challenge themselves, both personally and as a team. 

  • Activities

    Bushwalking, kayaking, mountain bike trail riding, rock climbing and team building activities.

  • Offsite locations

    The main locations are within an hour from Adelaide consisting of Mt Crawford, Kuitpo, Murray River and Coorong. We can also go up to Flinders Ranges, or even Grampians National Park and Mt Arapiles interstate. We can tailor locations based on your requirements.

The Rite Journey – Into the Abyss

As a preferred provider of The Rite Journey expedition experiences, we create three-to-five-day Abyss expeditions to support your Rite of Passage program.

You can choose from a range of fully facilitated activities, or we can tailor your expedition to meet the needs of students. 

We will work closely with you to deliver the appropriate level of challenge to support young people to become resourceful and reflective adults.

Expeditions can be delivered at Mylor Adventure Camp, Wirraway Homestead or at one of several SA locations.

Adventure Experience Paradigm  

Challenge by Choice 

We create environments where students feel safe and encouraged to take risks and step out of their comfort zones. Uncomfortable isn’t unsafe. Learning to take risks in a safe environment is essential to human growth and flourishing.

  • Students get to choose their level of challenge. 
  • Students get to choose their level of support.
  • Students get to choose how deeply they participate. 

First Degree Fun

1st Degree Fun is enjoyable while it is happening – and we do plenty of it!  

Second Degree Fun

2nd Degree Fun is still fun. It can be difficult and uncomfortable when it’s happening but is awesome when you look back on it! As a teacher, you know your students and what is ‘fun’ for them. We believe the difference between First and Second Degree Fun is time, encouragement and support. 

We supply all outdoor equipment required for the expedition including tents, rucksacks, trangias, first aid, emergency shelter, roll mats and base camp gear (marquees, tables and water). 

Students need to supply their own clothing, sleeping bag and any medication.

Students also need to bring lunch on the first day and any extra snacks, if required.

We cater for all on and off-site expeditions and can cook on trangias.

Our catering team can create menus for people who have special dietary requirements. 

No, sorry. We are unable to provide transportation to our off-site expedition locations.

We allocate one staff member dedicated to the entire expedition program and a second staff member to run logistics.

For certain activities, we assign a second staff to coordinate and support the program to meet safety and industry ratio requirements.

Yes. We can visit schools to provide briefing sessions on tent set up, trangia cooking, packing a rucksack and answer questions, if required.

Weather is closely and continually monitored prior to and during the expedition, and information is relayed to our staff in the field. 

Expedition programs can be adapted when bad weather is encountered. In the event of severe weather, programs can be altered and shortened.
