What to Expect
Expect the unexpected! Life is full of mystery, adventure and the unknown… this experience is no different! TPCC experience is designed to make you and your child more resilient to change and challenge – having this element of surprise and uncertainty is a critical part of that. The ability to be comfortable with uncertainty will set you apart as an individual and as a family. It is an essential ingredient in our ‘secret sauce’!
However, here’s a sneaky peek at what you’ll get up to with The Adventure Group.
You will arrive at the RV (Rendezvous) and meet the Agent. From there you will move to a secret location for a briefing by former Special Forces Operators on all things safety and emergencies before learning ‘The Code’ (Code of Conduct). You will be given your first mission which will include –
- Night patrol
- Celestial navigation
- Leadership and responsibility
- Survival basics
And all this before bedtime!
Expect a very full day! You will be up early for a Discovery Walk in the bush. After a bush breakfast it’s straight into a morning full of learning and discovery to include solar navigation, more survival tips, bushcraft and adventure. Meals from here on in are Army rations from your very own ration pack. After lunch you will do some really sneaky fun stuff to include a mini-mission to rescue some friends before heading back to camp for dinner and prepare for the Night Mission! Form your own Commando team (parent and child) on the Night Mission in a Close Target Recon of another camp. Do you have what it takes to sneak in without being caught? The night ends with stories around the camp fire.
You’re up early again and after breakfast there is an Army style bed-space inspection, so you’d better be tidy! After that it’s off the cliff for some abseiling and climbing, but not before a ride in The Beast and making it safely through the Minefield!
The experience ends with a delicious lunch at a luxury resort – with a few more surprises – before heading safely home .
