This youth development camp departs Cairns and takes us to a cattle station near Mareeba, where we camp on a picturesque river. On the way there we learn about the fascinating history of Australia’s last frontier; Cape York. Activities here include orienteering, fishing lessons (we reliably catch fish here), personality building exercises and our fire made by flint competition!
Our youth & leadership development camps aim to provide youth and young adults with an extremely valuable opportunity to disconnect our busy everyday lives and the overwhelming nature of life in the 21st century. At these camps, we use some technology (no phone service) to bridge the gap with nature. We encourage everyone to embrace the bush and the opportunities for learning and rejuvenation it provides. We aim to help develop future leaders, build confidence, strengthen morals and refresh their energy for their life and their future!
Our 18-seater tour truck, Zeus, takes us on all our adventures. He is equipped with very comfortable seating perfect for off-road driving, a sound system with microphones for those who love karaoke and plenty of storage. The air-conditioning works extremely well and the tinted windows in the cab help keep the glare & heat out! Our trailer is our portable kitchen with even more storage which is perfect for any event; short/long term camping trips, weekend getaways, the list goes on! There’s even a large awning for those rare rainy days!
On camping tours, we take a maximum of 14 people as we remove the 15th seat in the back and replace it with an esky for your own snacks and drinks!
