Boys benefit from camping with Character
Camping in the great outdoors provides us with the opportunity to introduce our boys to a wide variety of experiences so they can learn and grow and explore, get ahead, be smart and well-rounded. We really think taking kids camping is one of the best things you we do with your boys, even, and especially, while they are very young.
There is just something special about taking a boy on a camp, and it provides an extraordinary opportunity for us to speak into the lives of the boys that we work with. It is a time away from technology, in the “wild” outdoors, full of adventure and new experiences – creating memories that will last a lifetime. We do several weekend and school holiday camps throughout the year with different themes. All camps are age group specific and we offer a number of different kinds of camping experiences, aligned with our curriculum - our camps build character!
The Character Company offers a number of camp experiences, and whilst we operate on a first-come-first-served, we do our best to ensure that every single boy on our program gets the opportunity to participate in at least one camp per year!
Our camps follow our annual curriculum and each will have a camp theme and provide opportunities to impart our 5 biblical values, as well as fun opportunities to push personal limits in a safe and controlled environment.
Adventure education often makes use of practical skills that will benefit an individual in areas beyond the activities. Campers will begin to recognize the inner resources, strengths, and positive qualities within themselves and within their friends. Reflecting and debriefing on the experience or ‘adventure’ afterwards allows the boys to learn more about their personal behaviour and contributions. This feedback informs them of the performance of the group as well and gives us an opportunity to relate this new understanding back to their everyday lives and routine to create positive change.
