The team at Veteran Mentors utilise the military-style training they endured in the Australian Defence Force to offer a boot camp for kids that transform the lives of their participants. After successful completion of their boot camp for troubled youth, participants are armed with the skills and motivation to achieve more than they ever thought possible.
The Junior Leader Program combines elements of child mentoring programs and troubled teen programs in order to offer a program that is not only for children and teenagers that are experiencing difficulties but for all kids and teens across Australia that want to benefit from a disciplinary boot camp.
When participants take part in the Veteran Mentors behavioural summer camps, they engage in exciting outdoor activities that incorporate lessons based on courage, resilience, initiative and teamwork. At the completion of the Junior Leader Program, participants are equipped with critical life skills such as relationship-building, academics, sporting achievements and plenty more.
Some of the activities involved in our military summer 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.
Our troubled teen programs are run at purpose-built, school camp facilities. The advantage of choosing these sites for our camp is the natural surroundings, 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.
