Holistic Outdoor Retreats for Teenagers
Growing Wild Outdoors runs holistic outdoor retreats for teenagers in the school holidays. They are on a mission to connect teenagers back to themselves, each other and the natural world.
With retreats capped at ten teenagers, the small group experience is all about slowing down, chilling out and just having a lot of fun!
Their community is safe, explorative, compassionate, fun and a technology-free experience. They are not a school or sport + rec camp, but a holistic experience. You don’t need to be ‘outdoorsy’ or ‘sporty’ to sign up… in fact most teenagers aren’t!
Sign up with a friend or come alone! We believe the outdoors is a place to facilitate growth and transformation and design retreats so that every teenager can feel part of a community and be successful at Growing Wild Outdoors.
When and where:
Year 8 and 9: Pittwater Paddle, Pittwater. Sunday, April 10 – Wednesday, April 13.
Year 10 and 11: The Reconnection Retreat, Gerroa (South Coast). Wednesday, April 20 – Saturday, April 23.
