Overview of Somerset

Somerset Outdoor Learning Centre has been offering outdoor programs to school students since the early 1980’s. As an industry leader with over 35 years of expertise, Somerset offers a unique blend of learning experiences, outdoor facilities and activities delivered in a professionally managed outdoor education program. Somerset offers the unique experience of tent camping which presents the opportunity for students to engage with their natural surroundings and spirit of adventure. We provide a fun and supportive framework for students to develop leadership skills and work as a team and to appreciate the value of friendship. Our professional, tertiary qualified Group Leaders facilitate engaging fun activities, extending students physical and emotional capabilities, while enhancing self-confidence and self-reliance.

Somerset programs aim to develop student relationships with the outdoors, and with each other, in an environment that requires initiative, perseverance, adaptability and a sense of responsibility. Our programs provide students with the opportunity to reach out of their comfort zones and to embark on positive risk-taking initiatives both of which are crucial to their development as they emerge from adolescence to adulthood.
