Camp Goals

Group Meeting, 2012

Having lots of fun singing, dancing, playing and sharing with new friends and old.

Connection and communication between teenage home educators throughout Australia.

Providing a safe environment with lots of support and encouragement. Being at a camp for a week can be a daunting thing, especially if it’s the first time away from family.  Our goal is to make camp comfortable, supportive and safe, and for campers to feel at ease in their environment.

Encouraging  the continuing development of  social and interpersonal skills, as well as extending the teenage networks, particularly for those in remote or isolated communities.

Encouraging and providing opportunities for the development of leadership skills by making the camp a sharing environment where campers take an active role in decision making, organisation and presentation of activities.

Circus Talent Show, 2012

Providing opportunities for personal growth and independence on many levels, including the development of self-awareness, to build or strengthen assertiveness and self-esteem.

Making new friends with fellow campers and staff, and encouraging the development of ongoing friendships over the years.

Learning new skills from both staff and each other as everyone shares some of their interests and passions in life in daily camper-led workshops.drawing3

To change the world and inspire ourselves, to make it a better place for everyone.
