Blue Light runs Life Skills camps in conjunction with the NZ Defence Force at Burnham military camp for youth aged 14-17 years old. This has been run for over ten years with over 5,000 young people attending these camps throughout New Zealand.
The young people who attend these camps learn about team work, discipline, leadership skills, life skills, perseverance and resiliency.
The young people attending also have the opportunity to earn up to twelve NCEA credits.
These camps are also very suitable for young people who are interested in joining the services i.e the NZ Police, Army, Navy and Airforce as a possible career pathway.
We have two camps left this year at Burnham. The dates for these are 17th-21st August and 28th September – 2nd October. The second date is during the school holidays so a great opportunity for any of your pupils who would not be able to attend during the school term dates.
