Stage Two: Helping the Mountains
COVID 19 Update: Due to COVID-19 we are unsure when we will be recommencing programs. we hope to in 2021. We will post on social media and the website when bookings are available. Sorry for any inconvenience
Stage Two is a unique opportunity for young people who enjoyed their Wollangarra Stage I to come back, get their hands dirty, visit more amazing mountains, and meet lots of other like-minded individuals.
The program is slightly different to that of a Stage One. It runs for six days, rather than five and three nights are spent camping. Stage II’s may camp together in one big group (maximum of 24 young people with four or five staff) or in two smaller groups (12 young people with 2 staff). This is a great opportunity to really get to know the other people on the program.
When Stage Twos go hiking their main purpose is to work on a conservation project in our local area. This means we often carry tools and any thing else we might need with us. In the past, Stage II’s have worked on building and maintaining hiking tracks, rebuilding sections of old high country huts, or revegetation in important conservation areas. This is all done with the assistance of Wollangarra staff members and sometimes professionals in the field (like Parks Victoria Rangers, stone masons or local walking club members). We also make sure that we have a rest day going for a wander up a river bed or up a mountain nearby.
All program bookings are online and the next school holiday program opens at the start of the school term.
If a program is fully booked online and you wish to be placed on the waiting list, please call the homestead (03) 5148 0492
School holiday programs currently cost $250 per participant. We aim to keep this cost as low as possible, and try to ensure that Wollangarra programs are accessible to all young people who want to attend. However, this cost increases annually to ensure it covers the costs of running programs.
As we aim to make our programs accessible to all young people, full and partial sponsorships are available on every course. Please don’t hesitate to call Wollangarra on 03 5148 0492 to discuss.
If you already have a CareMonkey account already please use this email to book onto the program.
