During the Urban Challenge programs where teamwork is key. Small teams, each with a teacher and Urban Challenge guide, embark on an unfolding adventure through Sydney and surrounds. Each team member has a functional role that contributes to the running of the team and everyone must work together to take responsibility for the team's money, transport, timings and meals. There is a service component of the program that allows students to see what the needs are in society and make a small contribution to the organisations that aim to help people in need. Parts of our Challenge are run via our interactive website where teams are required to upload blogs and photos and check-in for their next day’s itinerary. There's also a Program Page for those at home wanting to see what the teams are up to, allowing the chance to participate from home or check out the daily blogs and photos.

During the Urban Challenge students and staff stay in a variety of accommodation including tents on Cockatoo Island, and YHA youth hostels.
During the program students will complete urban-flavoured activities, clue chases, meal preparation and much more along the way. This includes visiting venues all over Sydney but that is all we are able to tell you at this point as the rest is a surprise.
