This year Free Spirit Tours has launched a new program called "Natural Leaders". It's a program that challenges youth to experience 2 weeks of outdoor adventure and sustainable living in the Blue Mountains area.
It's a leadership program for youth aged 15 - 18 years. While living on a eco friendly farm (Kimbercote) they will tackle daily team building challenges such as how to cook a meal using only local ingredients.
They will also take part in environmental stewardship initiatives like river clean ups, community gardening and tree planting.
The program also allows for personal growth and development through outdoor activities such as rock climbing, canoeing and caving as well as time for reflection through journaling and group discussions.
Chai Gilbert is the program director and has and educational background in community development and therapeutic recreation. Over the last 8 years she has coordinated nation wide youth exchange programs and has facilitated leadership training workshops.
This program is ideal for youth who are:
• looking for adventure
The camp runs from July 17th – 31st and runs at a cost of $1,600 including food, lodging and activities and if you register before June 1st you can save $100.
