Beyond Limits Outdoor Education provides a unique range of adventure activity and social awareness programs throughout South Australia. Our programs provide unique learning opportunities which would not be easily achieved in the classroom environment, and leave students with a positive memory of their school years.
Effective facilitation is critical to achieving the best possible outcomes for school camp and adventure camp participants. Beyond Limits’ facilitation staff undergo a vigorous selection process and are appropriately skilled and trained to facilitate activities in variable conditions. Beyond Limits’ staff are skilled in extracting valuable teaching outcomes from each activity and pride themselves on their engagement with students.
Each activity is conducted in accordance with strict operating guidelines and risk management practices. Risk assessments are conducted and reviewed annually for each activity and are available to schools upon request.
Outcomes from multiple camps are enhanced when camps are scaffolded sequentially from one year to the next rather than held in isolation. The philosophy behind the sequential camps experience is that students develop their skills, and receive consistent facilitation through the various year levels – engagement with students by our facilitators is enhanced through the process of the sequential camps.
Our adventure programs are designed to promote participation, communication, teamwork, leadership and initiative and will always be appropriate to the age, skills and experience of the participants.
Our expeditions are held at Deep Creek Conservation Park. Students are introduced to hiking in a safe and controlled environment. Students hike with day packs (not rucksacks) and camp overnight in designated campgrounds (with toilet facilities). All equipment is provided and food / meals can be provided by arrangement.
Our basecamps are held at nearby national and forestry parks. Sleeping in tents and cooking on trangias, students engage in activities such as hiking, camping, kayaking, wildlife observation, and more. These experiences are not only fun but also teach critical problem-solving, teamwork, and leadership skills. All equipment is provided and food / meals can be provided by arrangement.

- Refugees and asylum seekers
- Disability services
- Children in need
Our aboriginal culture programs are held at Nunyara Conference Centre (Belair). Students learn about local aboriginal culture and participate in a range of workshops including:
