 In collaboration with the Shire of Waroona, zero2hero are pleased to offer the Mental Health and Leadership program Camp Hero. This program has been selected to consolidate the objectives of the Baldja Program in empowering and promoting youth mental health within the Waroona community. Camp Hero has been fully supported by WA Health Alliance.

 

What: Camp Hero is a leadership camp which hosts 40 Year 8 to Year 12 students. The camp is facilitated by WA-based not-for-profit organisation zero2hero.

 

Camp Hero equips students with the skills required to become mental health leaders and ambassadors in their community. Our team of experienced mentors and facilitators will assist students in developing their understanding of the mental health arena through a series of specialised workshops and activities. Students will be encouraged to physically challenge themselves whilst at the same time learn how to communicate more proficiently and how best to care for themselves.

 

Where: Nanga Bush Camp

 

When: Monday 8th January – 12th January 2018.

 

Transport: Bus transport will be provided to and from the camp for students.

 

Safety: We take student safety extremely seriously. All volunteers require current police and working with children checks. Risk and safety assessments are conducted prior to each activity. Speakers and volunteers will act in accordance with zero2hero’s code of conduct and child protection policy documents at all times and under the supervision of the zero2hero management team. There will be qualified first aid and bronze medallion volunteers on-site for the duration of the camp.

 

Please note that this is not a camp for mental health treatment or therapy.
