Focus | Resilience | Strength
SOAR is an intensive 12 month adventure and experiential program that develops resilience and focus for boys in years 7 to 9. It uses a highly relational approach that helps participants develop identity and gain a sense of belonging.
SOAR is particularly suited to students who are at-risk of being excluded from their school, who are in conflict or crisis with their families or are suffering from depression or demoralisation.
This camp is one key component to the SOAR program. By itself, it’s just a fun-filled time for young boys to get away from home. Combined with weekly in-school sessions and on-going mentoring, campers walk away with powerful life changing experiences.
The camp provides physical challenges such as rock climbing, abseiling, vocational experiences, hiking and ropes courses. These challenges provide opportunities for positive values to be integrated into action- based learning. Students learn by doing, reflecting and observing throughout.
By the end of a 12 month period, the students have learned essential life skills that will then help them cope better with their school and home environment, developing positive life decisions.
