Basecamp (Overnight supervision by SREEC and visiting school)

Basecamp accommodation refers to when students hike or canoe and spend a night or more “offsite” away from the centre facilities but are heavily supported by an extensive equipment drop.  Students often have a basecamp experience embedded into their residential camp with groups rotating through the accommodation.

Trekking camps (Overnight supervision by SREEC and visiting school)

Trekking  refers to almost the same scenario except that students carry all of their equipment with them requiring only a water drop at the campsite location.
