The Urban Challenge is a family owned and operated company which was founded in 2006. We have a passion for providing teenagers with a genuine positive learning experience. From our previous experience in school wilderness camps we became aware of the need for a different type of programme to complement traditional outdoor education.

School Programs

The Urban Challenge provides the ultimate real-world experience to over 3000 school students every year. Small teams, each with a teacher and an Urban Challenge Guide, embark on a fast-paced unfolding adventure through Sydney and surrounds. Teams must complete urban-flavoured activities, clue chases, meal preparation, go-discover challenges and much more along the way.

Duke of Edinburgh

The Urban Odyssey is the Duke of Ed version of our program - providing a practice and qualifying journey for Gold level participants. The program brings the best of our classic Urban Challenge program into a traditional expedition. The journey starts in bushland around Sydney and progresses into the CBD to finish with some 'amazing race' type challenges around the city.

Family Challenge

The Family Challenge is our newest experience! A one day challenge that will test each member of the family. The Family Challenge gives the opportunity for mum and dad (or other family members) to share in the experience of an Urban Challenge for themselves, and not just from home watching while their son or daughter have all the fun with their school friends!
