At Vertec Adventure we are all about designing programs with change and purpose in
mind. So if you have outcomes you would like to see in your group, we customise and
select activities to suit your objectives, budget and location. The Vertec Program
manager will give you reccomendations and a program can be negotiated to suit what
you would like for your group. Finding a careful balance of fun and learning comes
from experience and the ability to offer a wide range of outdoor activities. From
½ day sessions to several week long programs, we can make it work for you.
Expeditions & Adventures
There is nothing more satisfying than completing a journey under your own steam.
Bushwalking, paddling, mountain bike riding and climbing all bring a sense of achievement
when the adventure is completed; Think about it... Topping out on a hard, long climb,
reaching the summit of a mountain after walking all day, and landing on an island
out to sea after paddling 10 km. The feeling is incredible and the advantages are
often underestimated and not realised till some time after the activity.
The relationships formed amongst group members enable open communication and effective
de-briefing and processing. Sub-conciously, people attach things they have learned
with peak experiences and these pleasurable experiences positively re-inforce the
lessons and realisations to create lasting change. We have witnessed great lasting
results from groups such as corporate groups, youth groups, at-risk groups, family
units and many other groups attending our expeditions.
Expeditions and adventures can be ½ day to week long depending on your calendar and
budget. Kayak, sea kayak and bushwalking trips tend to be the longer expeditions
but we can merge climbing and mountain bike activities to these in order to utilise
Camps are always more effective than single day activities. This can be evidenced
in a year 9 boy after a well planned school camp. The change can be more than that
of many weeks or months in the classroom. To go away camping, is to be removed from
your comfort zone. This causes a different set of behaviours, attitudes and actions.
Vertec Adventure has many well kept commercial grade canvas tents and we can accomodate
up to 50 people in many campsite locations throughout SE Queensland. Depending on
what activities you would like to incorporate into your camp, we can suggest the
ideal location for your group. We also work with many outdoor recreation campsites
and centres so if your group prefers the dormitory style accomodation we also can
