Justin joined Kokoda Youth Foundation Outdoor Education Department in 2022.  He brings extensive experience in management and operations,  having had a military career and previously owned a business.  As a veteran Justin identifies with the Kokoda values of Courage, Endurance, Mateship and Sacrifice and looks forward to sharing these with clients and colleagues.

When Justin isn’t at work he enjoys spending time Kayaking and bushwalking with his family.

Ingrid has worked in the outdoor education industry for over 10 years, leading groups on adventures both here in Australia and in developing countries.  She brings her passion and experience in leading groups to our team, and works with schools to write programs that meet their desired outcomes.

When Ingrid isn’t at work you can find her somewhere in the bush with her binoculars and camera, or camping in remote places.

I have over 22 years of experience in the Outdoor Industry and have worked in Africa, Asia and the UK over the years.

Since having kids of my own, I have not worked with kids in the outdoors directly but have been involved indirectly in support and admin roles and I am passionate about the impact of outdoor education.

I am very excited about joining KYF and working closely with the Outdoor Education team.

When I’m not working, I enjoy playing hockey and soccer, and spending time next to the sporting fields cheering on my kids.

As a family, we all also enjoy spending time in the outdoors.

Charley brings her enthusiasm and love for the outdoors to our camps after working and adventuring on the ski fields of Canada, and qualifying as an outdoor leader through Tafe Queensland on the Sunshine Coast. During Charley’s studies she did some work experience at Camp Kokoda and felt an immediate connection to the values of courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice, and has been leading camps with us ever since.

Craig has over 35 years working in the building industry and brings his many skills to keeping our camp in tip-top shape.  One of his latest projects is an obstacle course that students are tackling as part of their program.

When Craig isn’t working, he enjoys his downtime by camping and hanging out with his dog, Kip.

Jared has been part of the KYF since 2019 when he started as a 2019 Kokoda Kid whilst finishing school.

Since then he’s learned to live by the four pillars of Kokoda (Courage, Endurance, Mateship and Sacrifice) and joined the Camp Kokoda team, where he’s been able to give back what he has learnt throughout his time as a Kokoda Kid and in the Outdoor Education setting.
