Getting Kids Outside
Tugela River Trails is an Outdoor Education provider based outside Winterton in KZN, South Africa.
Over the last 5 years we have specialised in planning and facilitating Journeys for high school kids. We also run Wilderness Skills and Bushcraft courses for junior school kids both in the school term and in the holidays.
These journeys are designed to extend the kids both mentally and physically, taking them out of their comfort zones. Group sizes will never be more that 20 kids with 2 adults (teachers from the school). Each day the nominated leaders will make the decisions for that 24hr period. Decisions include wake up times, meal plans, navigation, and overall responsibility for camp hygiene and group dynamics. A daily de-brief in the afternoons is often a great time for the team to reflect on the days activities.
