Camp Hero YOUTH

Giving young heroes the tools they need to nurture their wellbeing.

Camp Hero YOUTH Application  

Apply To Mentor  

Camp Hero YOUTH is a FREE camp program equipping 13 – 15 year olds with the skills necessary to understand and support their mental health, while creating meaningful connections with their peers.

As they spend 5 days in nature, students will be taken through a series of engaging workshops and fun team building and confidence boosting activities.

Each student will come away from camp having covered a variety of topics such as how they feel about themselves and their life, developing resilience through challenge and maintaining healthy peer relationships to discover who they are and how to better support themselves.

Camp Hero Youth FAQs

Why was Camp Hero Youth created?

Whilst children can experience mental health issues at any age, they are most at risk between the ages of 12 and 16 years. In fact, approximately 1 in 7 children and adolescents aged 4 – 17 have recently experienced a mental health disorder in Australia. For this reason the promotion of good mental health, prevention and early intervention before/at the onset of mental disorder can significantly improve outcomes.

When is Camp Hero Youth held?

Camp Hero Youth is a 5 day mental health program that is held during the school holidays, multiple times each year. Information will be shared on how to apply on this page as new camp dates are released.

Who is Camp Hero Youth for?

Camp Hero Youth is open to all young West Australians in Years 8 and 9 who share a passion for mental health and a desire to impact their community.  Students must complete an application process to attend Camp Hero Youth. The selection criteria is available on request.

How much does it cost?

Camp Hero Youth is free to all attendees. The cost is covered by zero2hero’s fundraising initiatives and student sponsorships.

What do students do on Camp Hero Youth?

Camp Hero Youth provides a safe space for students to discover who they are and what they value, and the opportunity to create meaningful connections with other young people who share a similar passion. The program offers young people an outcomes based education on mental health and wellbeing as well as communication and leadership, through a series of tailored, engaging workshops covering topics such as how they feel about themselves and their life, mental health and wellbeing, developing resilience through challenge and maintaining healthy peer relationships.
