Adventure Camps Australia

Of all the sites for adventure camps Australia is widely regarded as one of the most exotic and fascinating. This is due largely to the Great Barrier Reef, the only natural wonder visible from outer space. The reef is home to some of the most rare and colorful marine life in the world, making it arguably the greatest dive spot around.

Your son or daughter can dive with schools of manta rays and maybe even a whale or two off the Whitsunday Islands. Or, he or she can check out the vertical walls, ledges, and pinnacles that make the Coral Sea a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your teen may play among schools of cod and grouper, or just investigate the exciting plant life.

Adventure Camps Australia: More Than Just Swimming and Diving

When people think of the land down under, it's not always necessarily about marine life. There's plenty going on in the city, as well as the outback, and your child will have the chance to experience both. In Cairns your teen will spot endangered (and protected) species of bird in the rainforest, which grows all the way out to the sea. At Forrest Grove he or she will feast on crocodile and emu--as well as more traditional barbecue delights.

Of all the adventure camps Australia brings together more distinct cultures, both human and animal, than any other. Your teenager's time playing clapsticks and didgeridoo and studying aborigine life will give him or her a respect for this radically different way of life. It's the cultural sensitivity and worldliness that your child will take home that is the true hallmark of summer travel camps. Many teachers and coaches even remark just how amazing it is that a young adult can grow so much in a few months between school years.
