The Wilderness Program provides opportunities for young people to join in recreational and adventure based activities in the Gippsland Wilderness.
Our experienced program staff encourage and guide the young people to provide a safe and non-directive environment with an emphasis on self-discovery.
Through exciting experiences, ranging from bush-walking, white water rafting, and fishing, the young people are challenged to produce new ways of coping with stress and conflict.
Wilderness staff are on hand to provide ongoing support to each young person. This support includes involvement of family members and/or supporting adults in day activities.
It is the intent of the program to support and provide positive options, as the basis for appropriate and responsible decision making in the young person.
The program will challenge the young person through experiences which will at times disorientate their way of thinking.
Staff will then help them interpret these experiences to promote positive change.
