Military camp teaching teenagers discipline and resilience

By Nance Haxton on The World Today

For many children, the school holidays are a time to relax, but a group of Australian teenagers is instead bunkering down with ex-servicemen and women, doing military drills in a remote corner of the Gold Coast hinterland.

Around twenty teens from all around the country are spending nine days away from their parents and technology to get a different perspective on life.
