The industry is invited to participate in current research.
1. Camp Provider Survey - CURRENTLY OPEN
Camp providers make up a large part of the Outdoor Education Industry and service school children to build skills of resilience, social connection, adventure, and improve mental health. Many schools program this activity as an essential to their yearly calendar whilst other schools may not.
As an organisation we have no understanding of the following;
Number of schools in NSW that are programming Outdoor Education into their yearly calendar
Number of schools in NSW that are not programming Outdoor Education into their yearly calendar
What are the obstacles/perceptions of the schools that do NOT program Outdoor Education
Quantitative information pertaining to participation in Outdoor Education by schools in NSW
Qualitative information pertaining to perception, participation, and obstacles in Outdoor Education by schools
Other findings that relate to increasing participation in Outdoor Education by school children in NSW
