Camp Awakenings is an Australian youth development program for Year Nine students. Camp Awakenings is focused on building support networks for the participants through friendship and trust. Through self-belief, self-respect, a positive attitude and motivation, the participants develop and harness methods, tools and skills to counter the challenges faced by today's youth.
Camp Awakenings runs for the three days. During this time, the students participate in team building activities, as well as attend various sessions and presentations on youth related issues. They are challenged physically, mentally and emotionally throughout the program. Camp Awakenings provides its participants with a supportive environment to grow and develop. All participants learn and benefit from the camp in their own unique way.
Camp Awakenings Mt Eliza is a project of the Rotary Club of Chelsea and would not be possible without assistance from other Rotary Clubs in District 9810 (and beyond), private and business sponsorship.
