This camp is only offered to students completing Unit 1 and 2 Physical Education. In class we will have been studying key concepts such as sociocultural influences on physical activity (enablers and barriers), physical activity promotion strategies and other topics from a health science perspective. This experience will expose students first hand to multiple key learning concepts and applications. Students will also be coached on how to surf, and experience and observe various coaching styles which will be present in the Unit 3 and 4 study design for this subject. It is also a great way to reflect on the role the environment plays in physical activity levels and how some initiatives are using surfing to improve ‘connections’ in some communities, as well as enjoying time bonding as a class.
