Hay 2711

We've worked with the Hay Community since October 2019 and are keen to develop a sustainable, long-term delivery of the Giz A Break program for young people from Hay and surrounding communities. Over 2023 and 2024, we'll be delivering 8 camps and many individual and small group follow-ups. The first six camps are done and dusted, and the final two are coming up in November! We're also running a suite of smaller (up to 6 participants) and shorter (2 nights) follow-up adventures for previous participants who would like some additional support.

Follow-up adventures (for past participants)

SELECTIVE REGISTRATION

Reserved for young people from Hay Shire (NSW) who have previously participated in our adventures. If you think you need a bit of additional support, please chat with us. We will also contact past participants directly if we think they'd benefit.

14-17 year olds (new participants)

REGISTRATIONS OPEN IN AUGUST

Reserved for young people aged 14-17 years who live in Hay Shire (NSW). The first camp (12-15 Nov '24) is for girls and the second (26-29 Nov '24) is for boys. Secure your spot on this four-day adventure in the Victorian High Country. Awesome views, log huts, waterfalls, and exciting 4x4 tracks - and of course a decent campfire... What are you waiting for?

Greater Shepparton Secondary College

Since 2020, we've been running two camps for GSSC students each year. This year's camps are supported by a generous donation from the Shepparton Central Rotary Club. GSSC teachers refer students to this program on an as-needs basis - so, please check in with teachers before registering :)

8-11 October: #yeahtheboys

Destination: Mountains, crystal clear streams, waterfalls, awesome 4x4 tracks, and never ending views. Up to 9 boys can participate. If you're a student at Greater Shepparton Secondary College, make sure you chat with your teacher and your parents about coming along and get your rego filled in. You'll need your primary carer (parent, or other legal guardian) to sign your registration, so make sure you chat with them.

22-25 October: #yeahthegirls

Destination: Mountains, crystal clear streams, waterfalls, awesome 4x4 tracks, and never ending views. Up to 9 girls can participate. If you're a student at Greater Shepparton Secondary College, make sure you chat with your teacher and your parents about coming along and get your rego filled in. You'll need your primary carer (parent, or other legal guardian) to sign your registration, so make sure you chat with them.

For Individuals (including NDIS participants)

Group Camps

The camps listed below are accessible to individuals. Please note that these camps are not supported by grants or donations, which means that a fee applies as indicated on each camp's tile below. If you (or your child) are an NDIS or Carer Gateway participant, please talk to your plan manager, support coordinator, or case manager (as applicable) before you register. The camps are fully catered and supported by a group of experienced and qualified staff with a high staff-to-participant ratio (at least 1:3, often 1:2). The locations, itineraries, and activities are spectacular! The key goal for each of our camps is to ensure each individual participant grows as a result of their experience with us. Our staff are trained and we use youth and social work approaches to deliver our adventure therapeutic programs. So, of course you will have a magic and exciting adventure while you (or your child) come(s) along, but you get a whole lot more than that. Oh, and the food is actually decent and healthy. Forget stale sandwiches - you'll get some proper tucker!

Camps for 14-17 year olds

Camps for 18-24 year olds

1:1 Mentoring

1:1 Adventure Series

We started developing our 1:1 adventures upon the request of a participant who had come along on one of our group adventures and wanted to continue working with us to build on the positive impact he felt his participation had had. While we can offer stand-alone 1:1 adventures for respite purposes or as a circuit breaker or just a "taster", we think that connecting a series of six 1:1 one-day adventures with a goal setting and attainment tracking approach is more impactful. We invite you to seek a discussion with us before you decide what you'd like to do, but read on first if you like. 


Destinations include the Victorian High Country, Strathbogie Ranges, The Rivers (Broken, Goulburn, Murray), and Beechworth region.


Referrals can be made by NDIS participants or their primary carer, Carer Gateway staff, Child Protection Services, Justice Services, and individuals who are able to self-fund their participation.

Justice Prevention

Bounce Back

Bounce Back Project

Goal: Reduce young men's risk of justice engagement. We're connecting 4-day off-road adventure camps with monthly small group full-day adventures. These camps are delivered by experience youth and justice workers. The project takes a youth and social work approach, embedded in our unique adventure therapeutic framework. Eligibility criteria: 14-17 year old boys who live in Greater Shepparton and are at high risk of justice engagement, or already engaged. Requirements: Willing to commit to monthly full-day adventures and a 4-day camp; legal guardian's consent; referral by schools, Rumbalara Co-op, courts, youth justice, or police.

This project is made possible through a grant from Greater Shepparton City Council under the Victorian Department of Justice and Community Safety's Empowering Communities Program.
