Veteran Mentors make a conscious effort to run their disciplinary boot camps in a fun and adventure-filled environment. The child mentoring programs teach kids and teens essential values and life lessons done through engaging outdoor activities that incorporate lessons based on courage, resilience and teamwork.
The Junior Leader Program is developed as a military summer camp, run by trained Australian Defence Force Veterans that effectively teach the skills they learnt from numerous deployments in a way that is understood and easily digested by kids and teens.
The program is not only beneficial as a troubled teen program but for youth experiencing all difficulties of life.
When participants complete their behavioural summer camp, they will be equipped with the discipline and essential skill set to continue developing into productive young adults. They will learn relationship-building skills, academic skills and sporting skills that will ultimately instil confidence and resilience to take on the world with a whole new attitude.
Some of the activities involved in our boot camps for troubled youth 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 school holidays camps in the Sunshine 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.
