Are the Leadership programs for business groups as well?
You bet. All our programs are completely customisable, and we love equipping teams of all types with leadership skills like teamwork, communication, resilience and emotional intelligence.
Will you come to us?
Absolutely! For our Leadership programs, we prefer to host you at our Fitzroy Falls Centre, where we have access to our full suite of leadership initiatives. However, Optimum Experiences is a fully mobile company. We can bring our gear and our team members to your premises and run a Leadership program from there - we can even include a mini camping trip or an Expedition.
How do I book?
First, get in touch with Optimum Experiences so we can design a program just for you. We’ll then set you up with a profile on VenueLife, where you can register and provide important information like group allocations, dietary requirements, emergency contacts and medical plans.
Do I need my own sleeping bag?
Yes, and please also bring a sleeping mat and pillow. You’ll find a full list of what you need to bring under our Resources section below.
What are the bathroom facilities like?
Learning how to take care of business in the bush is an important life skill! Toilets and bathrooms are part of the facilities at the Optimum Experiences Centre at Fitzroy Falls, at Base Camp at Coolendeland and at campgrounds in National Parks and NSW Parks. On Expedition, participants will have the full outdoor bathroom experience - privately, safely, hygienically and in a way that protects our environment.
What should I bring to an Optimum Experiences program?
Great question! You’ll find a list of what to bring under the Resources section of this page. After we’ve designed a bespoke program just for your group, we’ll also provide a handy packing list.
What’s the food like?
We think the food is great! Optimum Experiences provides all meals, with thanks to our incredible Logistics Coordinators. It’s all cooked fresh at the campground, in our commercial kitchen at our Fitzroy Falls Centre, and using the camp kitchen BBQ at Base Camp Coolendel. As we design the program for your group, we’ll collect information about dietary requirements and allergies, via our easy-to-use booking system, Venuelife.
Do all staff members have Working With Children Checks?
Absolutely. Our qualified, experienced outdoor educators are our greatest asset. Meet the team.
Will I need to carry my own pack?
With help, yes. However, each Optimum Experiences program is custom designed, especially for your group. Get in touch to learn how we cater to groups of all ages, numbers and abilities.
What other types of programs do you run?
As well as our Leadership program, Optimum Experiences runs a range of customised outdoor education programs for school groups and more: Centre Based, Base Camp, Coastal, Expeditions. On our Adventure programs, we take participants abseiling, canyoning, mountain biking, skiing and more.
How challenging will it be?
Every individual has their own challenges. We take great pride in tailoring our experiences to suit each group so that our programs exceed expectations. Our experienced, professional outdoor educators ensure participants feel safe and secure, while also helping to build a non-judgemental, supportive community of peers.
Does Optimum Experiences run the Duke of Edinburgh program?
We do! We facilitate the Duke of Edinburgh program at Bronze, Silver, Gold and International levels. Check out our Adventures for some awesome photos.
Will we be roasting marshmallows?
Naturally - as long as conditions are safe for a fire. In general, we might have small campfires for groups, as well as a bigger bonfire in our Amphitheatre. If the conditions aren’t suitable for a fire, we get creative with our camp kitchen.
