OUTDOOR EDUCATION BUSHCRAFT 32S - Semester 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Washbourn

This course is designed to provide students with a thorough grounding in the skills and understanding that are required to operate in the bush and back-country of Aotearoa New Zealand. There are three 3-day overnight trips relating to bushcraft and tramping skills in which students will demonstrate practical skills.  These are:

3-day Casey-Binser Tramp, Arthur's Pass National Park

3-day Cass-lagoon survival skills Tramp, Craigieburn Forest Park

3-day Outdoor Emergency Care camp, Craigieburn Forest Park

Level 3 Unit standards will be used to assess skills and knowledge.

Assessment has a practical component that must be assessed in outdoor contexts.  This means students must make themselves available for the overnight trips to be eligible to achieve the standards.

Recommended Prior Learning

Outdoor Education at Level 2 is an advantage, or a background in outdoor activity.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

A Donation request will be made for each overnight trip. These trips are run as cheaply as possible. We will be requesting approximately $40 for each of the 3-day tramps and $80 for the outdoor Emergency care camp. Donations request seek to recover reasonable costs of transport, accommodation where required and food were provided.
