The SELF Camps
S.E.L.F: Sustainable, Evolving, Learning for the Future, is a 3 day, camping experience program with continued support taking vulnerable teenage girls on a transformational journey of self-discovery.
Bullying, low self-worth, body image issues, self-harming, problems at home, anxiety, learning and attainment difficulties are all mental health issues which have been highlighted, by the government, with some alarming statistics and the long-term effects on life.
Our 3 day program aims to:
to support those at risk of exclusion from school by addressing attitudes, beliefs and behaviours that are barriers to learning
to provide them with tools to navigate the challenges through the teenage years and the transition from child to adult.
Building self-worth, self-esteem and confidence
Increase in acceptance of self and others as they are
Deeper understanding of own emotions and what may have triggered them
Enhancement of valuable life skills such as communication, personal responsibility, teamwork and resourcefulness
Tools and techniques to manage challenging situations more effectively
"Since the camp several of our young women have made marked changes. Some of their new skills are tolerance, patience, forgiveness, resilience, communication, understanding their strengths, strengthening and forging friendships, increased self-worth and self-esteem."
