Our Programs

dreamstime_xxl_21979823School programs are the primary focus of Optimum Experiences, individually designed to suit any group. Many schools choose to book sequential programs slowly building the skills and confidence of their students and allowing them to undertake more challenging camps in later years.
More information on specific programs may be found here:

Optimum Experiences are constantly developing and delivering new programs and adventure experiences and can tailor a program to suit your school group needs from any of the following:

Bush Camping

Bush locations are the perfect medium for the experiential learning process. Being in the natural environment can bring out the best in students who are guided to take responsibility for their own care and that of the group. Bush camps are a spectacular arena for adventure activities, from rock climbing to sea kayaking. Optimum staff are trained and qualified in a range of adventure activities and are proud to be fully “on duty” for the duration of the camp.

Centre Based Programs

Centre based school programs provide a great opportunity for students to participate in adventure activities, but in a more comfortable environment of cabins or rooms. We have a choice of venues to suit your group and we can design activities to suit your students. These camps are great for all age groups but are particularly good for primary or senior leadership camps.

In-School Activities

Can’t make it to an adventure camp? We can bring the adventure camp to you. Optimum Experience is a mobile operator and can bring many different themed programs to your school. This is also a cost-effective camp, as there are no extra charges for accommodation meals and transport and can run in normal school hours with minimum disruption.


These journeys are a wonderful opportunity for students to navigate through beautiful wilderness locations, bushwalking, and canoe and mountain bike expeditions. Small groups of students can really explore all facets of outdoor pursuits in more detail whilst being totally self-sufficient. We provide a high level of assistance to students but encourage them to take leadership opportunities.

Leadership Camps

Optimum Experiences can provide a comprehensive Crossroads camp for year 11 students. These programs will enable students to cover the 25-hour compulsory course over a few days combined with leadership and teambuilding activities. Alternatively, we can work with leadership groups within the school such as SRC or prefects or even staff development days.

School Snow Trips

Next winter let Optimum take care of coordinating your snow trip.
We have been running school snow trips for over 20 years. Our years of experience mean we can provide the best value for money for your students at the snow and customise the program to suit your school’s specific needs.
You can expect the following when you book a Snow Experience with Optimum Experiences.

  • Superior ratios and pre-trip information
    The ratio of Optimum staff and teachers means that students receive more support and supervision, resulting in a safer and more enjoyable snow experience. We also supply all the necessary paperwork to help make the organising teachers job a little easier too!.
  • School visits & flexibility
    We can help you save time by organising gear hire, and also come to your school to talk to students/parents to answer any questions they may have about the snow trip. We cater from the absolute beginner to the most experienced skiers and boarders.
  • Media
    Optimum Experiences will take both photos and video of your snow trip. This media will then be given to the organisers free of charge. By doing so, the trips merits are reinforced through the process of reflection and creating some great memories.
