Our Mission & Commitment
We believe children are our future and we need to actively help them grow into positive and productive members of our communities.
The 21st century brings an age of economic and technology disruption where every industry and job is being disrupted and transformed. Real world learning should be organic, integrated and engaging for young people so they can connect with themselves and their environment. We offer more than just an “outdoor camp” experience. We offer a life enhancing curriculum that prepares young people for now and into the future.
According to the CEDA Report in June 2015, “40% of the current jobs will not exist in the next 10-15 years”. The Jobs of the future don’t even exist yet. Australia requires young people to grow and innovate!.
Growing research supports the importance of helping young people connect with self, others and their environment. Our camps achieve an equilibrium of healthy relationships whilst incorporating technology and the great outdoors.
At Camp Cooby, we provide an evidence-based curriculum covering four educational streams:
- Social and Emotional Well-being; through Neuropsychology, Mindfulness & Self-Awareness Development
- Environmental Care & Sustainability; including Permaculture, Aquaponics, Food Production, and Waste Management
- Outdoor Education & Leadership; through outdoor and indoor team based challenge
- Technology, Entrepreneurship & Innovation; with the startup INCubate program, business model development, and turning dreams into a reality
