‘A journey with altitude’
NOW WITH AN AUTUMN AND SPRING OPTION EACH YEAR!
The Sea to Snow Training & Journey targets Year 10 Students, but year 11 students may also apply. The journey is 250km from the sea at Bermagui to the Snowy Mountains in NSW, Australia by hike and bike. Candidates for the journey must first complete a 3 day training camp to be eligible.
Sea to Snow students have persistence, positivity, organisation, fitness, teamwork and leadership qualities. These qualities are sought after by employers and by scholarship committees. The Sea to Snow Journey can also be counted as an expedition for the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.
The short clip below of the journey was made by a young participant (thanks Kade Brown), like most new experiences, it starts shakily, but becomes still and steep! (thanks Heath Cullen for the song)
AUTUMN OPTION 1: 3 day Training Camp Term 2, mid April, 9 day Journey mid May
SPRING OPTION 2: 3 day Training Camp Term 3, late August, 9 day Journey late September early October into school holidays
Minimum 10 participants, maximum 14. Up to 7 guys and 7 girls will be accepted each year for the journey.
Scholarship support is available by selling Crossing recipe books that also help explain the journey. Two journey scholarships for aboriginal students are also available from the Biamanga National Park Board of Management.
Sea to Snow Leadership Achievement – ‘Get into the wild and find yourself’
The Sea to Snow journey develops your leadership skills and confidence, and provides life-long friendships. It’s a stand-out achievement on your resume that starts conversations with new employers.
You may directly enter the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award if you are 16yrs and work towards this award as part of Sea to Snow (but you must pay a separate fee to the Award Scheme for this). Once you have been accepted by The Crossing you can then do an online Duke of Edinburgh Award registration making The Crossing your Award Unit.
