Extension Programs provide students with the opportunity to further explore the Alpine environment, extend their outdoor skills, leadership skills and build independence. It’s an opportunity for students to participate in a challenging expedition style program in the Alpine environment and share this with other like-minded young people from across the state. This is an opportunity for students to return to Bogong and learn more about themselves, others and the Alpine environment. Please feel free to encourage your students to consider this opportunity. Please refer to the students tab for more information about these programs or download the information booklet below.

Summit to Sea
The Summit to Sea Expedition is a program offered to all Victorian secondary schools students by Outdoor School Bogong and Rubicon Outdoor Centre, which in partnership with schools, provides an opportunity for students to undertake one of the best wilderness journeys possible in Australia. Students and staff journey through some of the most scenic and diverse environments in South Eastern Australia, using snowshoeing, bush walking, white water rafting and canoeing as their modes of transport. The expedition journeys from Australia’s highest mountain, Mt Kosciusko, all the way to the ocean seaside town of Marlo, over a 3 week period.
Students will need to have some experience in light weight camping. There will also be a training weekend to work on snow and white water skills.
