In August we headed off on another week long, Youth Justice camp. The group included two young men, 3 staff and 2 gap year students. This camp took us on a journey of self-discovery, thinking about who we are, what’s important to us and who we want to be in the future.
The camp allowed everyone to try new things, explore and develop their thinking and be involved in things we wouldn’t normally do. It also allowed for the group to explore and discover new and different parts of New Zealand and visit places that reminded the young men of many special stories and memories. Along with this the young people were exposed to a range of pro social activities and exercises including bungee swing, white water rafting, cooking and bone carving.
Throughout our camp journey many laughs, stories and memories were created and it was great to watch the two young men explore who they are and who they want to be.
With the experiences and relationships built during camp we look forward to watching the boys continue to grow at Challenge 2000, with their whanau and in their own communities.
