Our Wild4 programs follow on from our Lions Sponsored Camps that provide residential adventure camps for 8-11 year old’s who are identified as ‘deserving’ of the opportunity to come and have a week filled with fun, laughter and adventure.
Wild4 programs are the next step in the journey to opportunity for children 12-17 yrs. We aim to provide an early intervention for young people between 12 and 17 years old, who are identified as having “increased risk of disengaging from their school, society, and their families” .
The Wild4 programs use activities such as bush-walking, camp fires & cooking, group initiatives and white water paddling to help young people develop skills in communication, teamwork, goal setting and identifying positive choices.
The Wild4 programs are a chance for young people to get away from their usual environments where negative patterns are being created. Young people are supported by our highly skilled instructors, who, through the activities above focus on identifying negative behaviour’s and are coached through how to replace them with positive behaviour’s and decisions that will lead lead them to being more successful at school, in social settings and with future employment. Each young person has a chance to connect with peers, learn new skills and develop confidence within a supportive group environment.
