The Year 8 trip combines 2 trips into one. Students will complete a range of activities over 2 days at the North Star Camp in Dibba. Activities will include Zip Lining, Climbing, Orienteering/ Navigation, Team Building, Snorkeling and Kayaking. After a 2-night stay at the Dibba Camp students will then be transferred to the Desert, where they will begin an Orienteering course to set up camp for the night. On the final day the students will navigate to locate the bus pick up and return to Abu Dhabi.
Throughout the trip the students will develop their confidence in a range of different activities, work as a team, problem solve and understand the importance of consequence and error.
