Boot camps for troubled youth

Veteran Mentors Gold Coast

Is your child exhibiting poor behaviours such as lack of respect, technology addiction, poor motivation or low self-esteem? Our troubled youth programs on the Gold Coast are designed to deliver key life lessons and instil values in our participants that will help them to push past these behaviours while challenging themself in a fun environment.

The Junior Leader Program was developed by Defence Force Veterans who have a unique understanding of military-style training and how it can positively impact the lives of participants. Utilising skills acquired throughout deployments, our Veteran Mentors are able to deliver valuable lessons that help participants to become productive and proactive young adults.

Our child mentoring programs are not just for kids demonstrating poor behaviours, either; all children can benefit from the experience by pushing themselves and achieving seemingly insurmountable goals.

This includes engaging in exciting outdoor activities that incorporate lessons based on courage, resilience, initiative and teamwork.

Through successfully completing our Gold Coast disciplinary boot camp for troubled youth, participants are armed with the skills and motivation to achieve more than they ever thought possible. This includes relationship-building, academics, sporting achievements and beyond. And if they don’t succeed, they’ll have the confidence and resilience to bounce back and try again.

Graduation Day on the Junior Leader Program



Some of the activities involved in our disciplinary boot camps include physical and nutritional education, making beds, polishing boots, ironing uniforms, cleaning their barracks, and military marching. By completing routine tasks and placing value on them, participants begin to take pride in their workmanship and are able to continue this mindset at home and in life. 

As well as participating in these routine activities, our Junior Leaders have a ball getting active with the chance to go rock climbing and abseiling, as well as having a go at a high ropes course, an Army-style obstacle course, survival training and skydiving.

Location & Accomodation

Our troubled teen programs on the Gold Coast are run at purpose-built, school camp facilities. The advantage of choosing these sites for our camp is the natural surrounds, isolation from distractions and vicinity to natural waterfalls and bushlands. At the camp, participants are provided with bunk bed accommodation and access to amenities, as well as regular meals prepared with nutrition in mind. Get in touch with our team to find out more about the specific campsite for our next camp for troubled youth in Queensland.
