The Camp Kulin program has so far been recognised at national and international level as one of the leaders in its field. Our program continues to grow and provide better outcomes for our campers and participants.

While at camp, our campers and camp counsellors are presented with numerous tasks and activities which challenge them in ways they never thought possible. Through persistence, working as a team, building friendships and developing life skills such as self confidence, self esteem, leadership, communication skills, respect and trust, they are able to complete these challenges, sending them home with a sense of self worth.

Group initiatives, involving real and imaginary ground-based obstacles, present physical, mental and emotional challenges that invite a group to explore teamwork strategies and demonstrate for themselves the importance of planning, co-operation and effective communication, all of which are vital life skills to any team or human relationship.

The success of a group in meeting the challenges presented to them will depend not only upon individual strengths, but also upon creativity, tenacity, strategic planning, shared risk taking, allocation of resources and the ability to create a climate in which individuals are able to trust each other and in which each member’s contributions are recognised and valued.
