Queensland Programs

Our camps provide both single-day and multi-day experiences through our age-specific GROW, REACH, and LEAD programs. Additionally, our Eddie Explorer activities ensure consistent local engagement, offering new experiences each month. Our Head to Heart programs lay a strong foundation for primary school children, while also providing unique leadership opportunities for senior school students.

REACH (Suitable for children aged 8-12)

Imagine having the experience that every day one person is giving their time and attention to support your goals, to ensure you have fun, and expand what you believe is possible. What might change?

Participants are specifically buddied with volunteer mentors for the duration of the program, consisting of games and team- building activities. Our 1:1 ratio with participants and volunteers is further supported by a leadership team.

GROW (Suitable for children aged 8-12)

We offer young people opportunities to choose new challenges and explore new perspectives. For our participants, this might seem like a great time, but our activities and approach are carefully chosen to ensure they grow and develop. Our 1:1 ratio with participants and volunteers is further supported by a leadership team.

LEAD (Suitable for teens aged 13-16)

3-day youth camp in Brisbane, Queensland for teens, providing support to young people experiencing social and economic disadvantages. Through engagement with mentors, campers gain a sense of belonging, build leadership skills, increase personal capacity toward self-determination, and create aspirational goals for the future.

We don’t match our teens too tightly with a buddy, to allow for a more organic approach to peer-mentoring, where participants are free to connect with those that they have things in common with.

Eddie Explorers program

Fun multi-day programs in a one-day format. Pairing groups of 5 participants with 7 volunteer leaders, the teams enjoy an activity day where they are supported to try new experiences, build relationships, create a sense of belonging and connection, and have fun.

Head 2 Heart

Our schools partner program is targeted to lessen the impact of disadvantage, and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) – abuse, neglect, trauma, parental alcohol and drug use, maltreatment – by promoting protective factors to reduce the likelihood of harm and build resilience.

We have a day program and overnight program subject to location.
