Echo Creek specialises in outdoor education and adventure programs for schools, corporate groups, community groups, special needs and private groups. Our programs are tailored to suit the needs of the participants and the outcomes of the school or group.

Programs commonly run for three days, but can range from half a day through to a full week or more of quality outdoor education. We also run expeditions on and off site for those seeking more of a challenging and rewarding experience.

Programs emphasize personal growth through experience and challenge. Individuals develop self reliance, responsibility, teamwork, confidence, compassion and environmental and community awareness. Above all, participants accomplish all of this while having fun.

Echo Creek instructors are passionate about educating in the outdoors. All of our activities allow for some form of teaching, from goal setting and stepping out of comfort zones through to teambuilding and leadership styles. When clients come to Echo Creek we discuss the outcomes the school or group would like to achieve. If your school has special values (ie pillars, key values) that it focuses on, we can tie these into our programs so that your group can relate their learnings back to school life.

Echo Creek utilises a range of outdoor adventure activities to emphasise learning through experience.

Please Note:

  • Each activity requires approximately 2 hours (maybe more depending on activity)
  • Minimum of 10 per group (can be negotiated)
  • Qualified Instructors
  • Smaller group rates POA (price on application)

Abseiling / Rock Climbing

Participants are taught to abseil and take care of their safety on the ground before heading up to the abseil rock to complete their abseil. Echo Creek has both a natural rock abseil at 6m and a purpose built tower at 6m, 8m and 10m platforms. Longer sessions can incorporate a mix of lower and higher abseils. All abseilers are controlled by a safety rope back up that the instructor controls. The instructor to participant ratio never exceeds 1:3 on the platform. Remaining group members are supervised by a registered teacher (from the school group) or another adult at the base of the tower.

Abseiling pushes participants to step outside of their comfort zones and is an extremely rewarding experience. The role of the group is to offer support and encouragement for each other as they have their turn.The natural rock abseil is a great beginner’s activity as the natural surface is not very high but definitely can take people by surprise. This is a fantastic learning experience with a great adventure element.

Laser Tag

Inspired by Popular Video Games, fun made easy and No fuss.

Our laser tag equipment is safe. The laser tag equipment works with infrared, just like your TV remote, so it’s harmless and eye safe.  It is like a “live” computer game that gets everyone out and about. It’s fun! Integrated sensors mean you can play either indoors or outdoors. Up to 20 people can play at once! It is suitable for kids of all ages (and the young at heart).

Is a great activity to assist participant’s balance, skill, listening, feeling, audible, team skills, leadership skills and communication. Participants take part in a number of developed activities such as Shelter making, Crazy tabloid, Parachute games etc. where participants learn to work together and use each other’s strengths to build or create and achieve a desired outcome. 

Echo Creek offers a range of Initiatives and problem solving activities in each program. These activities help individuals to develop trust, group cohesion and effective behaviours that will contribute to optimal growth and program goal achievement. This is a great activity in the test of trust as well!

Raft Building

Raft building is a dam based activity where the group is given a certain amount of equipment and they must design and construct a raft to support some of their team members. Equipment includes poles, rope, timber etc. Participants must wear PFD’s as they swim/paddle their craft out to the pontoon on the dam. 

Raft Building is a favourite amongst participants and is driven by group discussion and collaboration. In order for teams to achieve success they must show initiative in their design as well as teamwork in order to construct their raft efficiently.
