Shelter Building

Test survival skills by working in teams to create shelters that withstand the harshest elements!

RECOMMENDED FOR YEARS 3-12

Our Shelter Building Incursion provides an opportunity for students to develop their team building skills by working towards the common goal of building a strong outdoor shelter. Students will be required to design their shelter so that it works within their budget and considers various design elements including suitability of materials. Not only that, their shelter must protect the whole group from the harshest weather conditions including Hurricane Supreme!

Students will learn about various types of human-made and natural shelters and discover why they are built the way they are. Students will need to use their Shelter Building money wisely and brainstorm needs vs wants as well as working out refunds and exchanges. This requires communication, negotiation and team work to complete the task. This team based incursion is lots of outdoor fun for everyone!

Thank you Brent for your organisation and enthusiasm with our Billy Carts incursion. Our students had a fantastic time and loved the hands on activities you provided.

St Kevins PS, Hampton Park

We had Year 3 and 4s attend the Mind and Body Incurison. All students have benefited from the activities and it related perfectly to our integrated unit. The teachers could not talk highly enough about the experience. We will be using Supreme Incursions again!

Eltham East PS

Brent was a fantastic incursion coach today. All of our teachers reported he was enthusiastic and responsive to our students. He explained things really well and created a really enjoyable and engaging day for our students. They loved the day. Thank you!

Nulkaba PS

Ryan was great! The incursion ran smoothly and the children absolutely loved exploring the science experiments! The biggest difference between Supreme Incursions and the rest, is that it's quite clear that the instructors are teachers and know how to talk with and interact with children! Will have you again any time!

St Theresa's, Albion

The students were very engaged with both activities, they were enjoyed moving around and being interactive with their peers. Both Mel and Jamie were very professional, friendly and helpful. The students had a great day - thank you.

Williamstown North PS

It was a very engaging experience for our students, particularly those students typically difficult to engage.

St. Mary's Dandenong

I just wanted to say that our incursion we took part in was fantastic and the kids absolutely loved it. They're constantly fighting over the parts that Ryan left with us. Ryan was amazing and we could not have asked for a better presentation. He was organised and aware but most importantly educational. The kids learnt lot. Thanks for your organisation and constantly providing educational experiences for our students.
