On the Right Track

On the Right Track

On The Right Track is a six month, regional school-based program for students in Grades 8 and 9 who are losing interest in their ongoing education and at risk of exiting the schooling system.

The program operates one day a week and combines three months of physical training for the 48km Kokoda Challenge event, and to promote self discipline and tolerance, whilst challenging them to break through their pre-set beliefs and personal limits.

This is followed by three months of community service providing students with the opportunity to make a difference in their local area through positive contributions and connections.

Kokoda Pathways

Kokoda Pathways

This 17 week program assists senior students who feel they are at a crossroads with their education and future employment. Often they may be at risk of disengaging from school or family life, or experiencing a lack of direction and motivation.

The students will be mentored in the skills needed for workplace readiness in a range of careers, while also learning a range of social and personal development skills through adventure-based learning and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).

Kokoda Challenge Youth Program

Aimed at 15-17 year olds, this nine month life skills program is for teens from all walks of life. It is built around our core values of Courage, Endurance, Mateship and Sacrifice, while being focused on training for a peak experience, which traditionally has been hiking the real Kokoda track in Papua New Guinea.

Throughout the program, kids are challenged and mentored through weekly endurance hikes and volunteer community service to learn the skills that build personal strength and resilience to help overcome adversity and succeed.

Digital Detox

Digital Detox

Our Digital Detox program gives the opportunity for kids to totally disconnect from technology and become more conscious of their relationship with technology.

Starting in 2022, and run onsite at our outdoor education facility Kokoda Park, this is a 9 day camp program for teens who are showing signs of digital dependence.

Through a series of adventure-based activities and educational workshops, the kids will be given the opportunity to disconnect, evaluate their well-being and create healthy new habits and boundaries in order to thrive in a digital world.
