Youth, Muster and Leadership Camps for Youth at Risk

During camps for youth at risk, the Art Cabriolet provides a one or two day workshops embedded into the therapeutic curriculum of the camping program. Educative and creative art sessions aim to produce reflection across a broad range of needs. Generally, at camp, adolescents find their voice to express as they are removed from their home family environment.  Art Therapists encourage a variety of creative methods to be used whilst fostering open communication to challenge adolescents to work through their difficult circumstance. The art process is empowering as it provides respite from the often-heavy emotions endured in a safe and contained way.

The program:

  • Builds positive community and peer to peer engagements.
  • Is reflective and meditative.
  • Supports creative learning that promotes emotional resilience and wellbeing.
  • Provides creative expression for enhancing empowerment.
  • Encourages team effort and team building, respect for others and empowers individuals to learn in team environments.
  • Demonstrates that accomplishment in something you thought you couldn’t do is achievable.
