CEO Outback Australian Camels

Russell understands the value of school camps and extended excursions for the child's development and growth as students progress through the school years.

Having been a teacher of Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Education in numerous locations around Australia and Internationally over a fifteen year career, he has seen many changes in the delivery of education. 

"The need for students to experience the wilderness along with the opportunity to stretch themselves out of their comfort zone has never been greater than now. 
What a magnificent and rare opportunity Outback Australian Camels offers. 
Discovering nature as it was intended, getting away from the clutter of modern life, being away from multi-media influences and bonding with animals through quality, professionally crafted, Outdoor Educational Programs. 

It is life changing to say the least."  - Russell Osborne
