‘A journey with altitude’
The Sea to Snow Training Camp and Journey happens every SPRING!
The Sea to Snow Training & Journey targets Year 10 Students, but year 9 and 11 students may also apply (you need to be fit and well organised). Candidates for the journey must first complete a 3 day training camp to be eligible.
The journey is 250km from the sea at Bermagui to the Snowy Mountains in NSW, Australia by hike and bike.
Sea to Snow students have persistence, positive 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.
Recent clips below of the journey were made by young participants.

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.
