UC Outdoors will see UC Camping expand the program service to include journey based expeditions involving bushwalking together with other journeying activities such as paddling, sailing, coach touring and cycling.
At the December 2012 meeting, the Commission for Mission Camping Committee gave overwhealming support to the proposal to launch a new UC Camping “product” to be known as UC Outdoors.
Since being established in 2006, UC Camping has provided a diverse range of programmed activities at the six campsites, both on-site and beyond. These activities have included surfing, bushwalking, canoeing, rock climbing, leadership development, abseiling, high ropes, low ropes, and more.
2013 will see several ongoing programs continue together with an opportunity for several schools to trial new journeys. The existing program team is well qualified to expand into this new area of program and will be supported by a dedicated new staff person in the refinement of logistics and program design.On numerous occasions UC Camping has provided site based groups with an overnight or longer camp-out journey experience. From time to time these programs have also been stand alone expedition programs including cycling, walking and canoeing. UC Camping has decided to step up the involvement in journey programming and hence has established UC Outdoors.
This is an exciting time for UC Camping and in particular the program staff involved. We look forward to delivering a range of journey programs, tailored to specific client needs, in the very near future.
