Pemberton Camp School students


Pemberton Camp School is a residential camp school that provides outdoor educational programs for children. Located in the small timber town of Pemberton, West Australia, the camp school collaborates with teachers to get kids out on the trail by offering week-long camps and an after school program.

Students undertake outdoor education and environmental programs with a strong focus on leadership and team building. One highlight of the camp is the mountain bike program, where students enjoy learning on the Pemberton Mountain Bike Park single track.

The program commences with mountain bike familiarization and skills progression on a range of single track and technical trail features so that each student learns and gain confidence. The pump track is the most enjoyable element that completes the program. Additional programs also feature bushwalking, canoeing, and environmental education programs.

Pemberton Camp School provides a rich and wonderful experiential journey and enables kids to get out and enjoy life through trails.
