With a fierce bang and a crack of thunder, the 2014 Year 9 Wolgan Valley Program began. The class was split into four groups, and as each group participated in their respective activities, the pressure was on to ensure that the 'tarpology' would provide sufficient protection from the elements (the shelter of the cave was highly sought after).

The students thoroughly enjoyed the simple daily routine of eating, adventuring, and sleeping under the stars. They spent two days on each activity, consisting of climbing, canyoning, walking and traversing the region. The walk through the Wolgan Valley was particularly spectacular, offering impressive views of Australia's largest unbroken cliff line, sightings of the rare Glossy Black Cockatoo, and the clatter of the Wonga Pigeons wings.

All groups were inspired by their group leaders to take on more and more responsibility each day, and achieve various goals. The size of each group made for a harmonious environment, old friendships were strengthened and new friendships developed. Overall, it was agreed that the camp had been a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
