Holiday Camp is an exciting opportunity for disadvantaged young Victorians to experience fun and learning activities in the rural environment. The residential camp is run from Doxa’s award-winning outdoor education facility at Malmsbury.
Doxa Youth Foundation celebrates 45 years this year and this summer over 200 young people from rural, regional and metropolitan Victoria will be attending a Doxa Holiday Camp.
The 5-day program incorporates learning, teambuilding and unique activities such as horsemanship, high ropes, climbing wall, bushwalking, arts & crafts, woodwork, outdoor cinema and much more.
Outcomes of Doxa’s Holiday Camp include: enjoyment of enriching experiences; building self-esteem and confidence; improved positive connections to peers and adults; fun, laughter and joy for vulnerable children.
Doxa’s Malmsbury camp won the prestigious Minister’s Award in the Government’s Community Sport & Recreation Awards in 2015 and continues to go from strength to strength, supporting young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
