Our Kids Camp is held on the Mornington Peninsula just a a few minutes from the beach. The program includes Swimming, Bike Riding, Archery, Strawberry Picking and a visit to a baby Animal Farm. Through positive interaction and fun activities, our volunteers will develop the children's social skills and their resiliance. Participants will make new friends, have fun and create lasting memories.
Our two Teenage Camps (boys & girls) are both based on the Great Ocean Road. The campsite’s location is an amazing base for activities in the surrounding Otways Region including Surfing, Canoeing, Mountain Bike Riding and Archery. The camps are designed to provide an opportunity for the young people to develop their sense of self, their team work skills, their decision-making skills and their ability to overcome difficult situations. The one-to-one ratio, of volunteers to participants, gives the young people a safe and supportive space to thrive.
