Reconnection Expedition

Reconnect with your child.

Rejuvenate and strengthen the bond with your child.

The Reconnection Expedition is a purpose led program that has been developed following feedback from parents who were keen to further build on their child’s experiences in our Junior Leader Program, and who we’re looking forward to helping re-establish their connection with their child.

Set in serene, peaceful and uninterrupted landscapes, our 3 day program is an unforgettable journey for both you and your child. Immerse yourself in nature, enjoy moments to cherish for a lifetime, build connections, challenge yourself, laugh and get in touch with your inner feelings. Step out the role of “Mum” or “Dad” and reveal your true self, and forge a deeper connection with your child.

Key Outcomes

The Reconnection Expedition is a transformative experience that is designed to foster and build on the connections that you have between you and your child.

Through the program our Directors seek to:

  • Break down barriers, any hesitations or reservations and set the scene for open and honest sharing
  • Facilitate parent led sharing revealing who they are as an individual
  • Challenge both parent and child in joint activities, such as abseiling and kayaking
  • Create an environment that is challenging, fun and rewarding through every experience

Program Details

Program Overview

Day 1 Veteran Mentors Directors lead and set the tone by sharing authentically and honestly about the journey of life and the importance of sharing and letting go.

Day 2 Parents are provided an opportunity to share their stories around the fire in front of their children. This is a facilitated experience that provides a safe and powerful platform to share, raw and authentically. The Veteran Mentors guide a powerful process of sharing and letting go, that sheds light on the child as to why the parents do what they do and why they are the way they are.

Day 3 Challenges both parents and children in an exercise to push your limits. Together parents and children will joint abseil and as they overcome fears and mental barriers, they strengthen their connection.

The Reconnection Expedition activities include:

  • Camping
  • Campfire cooking
  • Team building exercises
  • Canoeing
  • Hiking & Creek Exploration
  • Storytelling by the fire
  • ​Side-by-side abseil

This is an opportunity for both you and child to be vulnerable together in an unfamiliar environment and re-establish your bond through fun activities and enhanced discussion.
