Welcome to Discovery for Teens and Discovery for Kids
Discovery for Teens is a 7-Day Camp which changes lives of teens and their families
"Even the Spirit of Adventure trip or being presented with the Duke of Edinburgh medal does not match what I have gained from this. The Discovery learning programme has fulfilled every promise it made".
M.B. - Cambridge(NZ)
"Our daughter's confidence, maturity and self-esteem has increased and this has helped significantly in [all] our lives. She has a new lease on life, creating less stress for us all. I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone wishing to give their children direction in their lives".
Brent F. - Christchurch
The Discovery activity-based experiences are fun, positive and high-energy and explore how to be successful in all areas of life. They are non-religious and, with a staff/teen ratio of 1:3, teens learn tools for now and the future all while having fun and making new friends.
Topics such as connecting with people, making friends, goal setting and achievement, taking responsibility, self-awareness and understanding others, and making healthy choices are put into action. The definition of ‘healthy’ includes healthy for my long-term future and my aspirations.
The last day of the programme includes a one day parent workshop giving parents an overview of their teenager’s DISCOVERY experience and a chance to explore parenting and relating to their teenager.
95% of parents surveyed say their teen's overall attitude towards life lifted following Discovery
94% of Discovery graduates increase self-confidence and courage
96% of graduates report an increase in their self-motivation
99% record a dramatic lift in reading speed and comprehension
93% report having more self-discipline and commitment
"Discovery has helped [him] mature greatly. He is now taking responsibility for his behaviour and to 'own' what he says and does. For me Parent Day was very valuable as I got to know my son again - we certainly laid the foundations of a better relationship".
Deb W. - Dunedin
"The entire Discovery experience has impacted upon all aspects of our lives in profoundly positive ways. All teenagers and their families would benefit from this powerful programme".
