Building independence, confidence and resilience
The outdoor education journey at Prince Alfred College is an essential part of developing our boys’ social, physical and mental strength and wellbeing. For Princes Men, the journey starts in the Preparatory School and continues throughout their secondary years.
Through a range of overnight experiences, the boys develop character, competence, community-mindedness and leadership skills, and have fun together as they strengthen friendships and explore the outdoors.
At the same time, they are also challenged to take responsibility for themselves, to learn and grow through community service and environmental action.
Our outdoor education program
Every step in our outdoor education program adds value and substance to our boys’ all-round education. Through their outdoor education experiences, our boys learn about themselves, face challenges, take risks and discover the importance of teamwork.
