Parent & Teen Journeys

In today’s fast-paced and complex world, many of our young girls and boys struggle to negotiate their teenage years. They can find themselves lost and alone or seeking acceptance through peer group pressure and risk-taking behaviour as they transition into adulthood.

Our Adventure Camps and INTO ADULTHOOD Rite of Passage programs bring teenagers and their parents together to:

  • Experience fun, adventure and challenge
  • Communicate without barriers or distraction from technology
  • Appreciate the natural outdoor environment and be inspired by profound nature
  • Spend time together to strengthen bonds and deepen relationships
  • Talk, listen and share stories with each other and the group
  • Recognise and acknowledge the brilliance and gifts you both bring
  • Discover what you need from each other as your child becomes an adult.

Guide and celebrate your child’s journey to adulthood…..
