Leadership Camp 2018

Leadership Camp 2018

The annual Leadership Camp is a 4 day training course designed to provide leaders and potential leaders with a variety of tools, techniques and, most importantly, hands on experience in working with young people.

The leadership program is a valuable experience designed to support, encourage and equip participants to work with young people, not only on camps, but also in a wide variety of settings such as youth groups, parishes, schools and community groups.

Don Bosco firmly believed in peer-to-peer mentor and leadership and it is on this model that we base our program. After completion of the leadership course, leaders are encouraged to participate as leaders on our holiday programs, joining our team and working beside more experienced leaders.


The cost of the camp is $150, which includes accommodation, all meals and activities, a leader’s kit and a leader’s T-Shirt.

Where more than one person from the same family is attending a camp, the charge for each additional person is reduced by $75. However, no person will be excluded because of financial reasons. (Please contact the camp manager for funding application and more details.)

“Don Bosco camp truly has impacted my life in so many positive ways. From helping me learn new life long skills to building long lasting friendships. I am the person I am today largely due to the input camp has had on my life.”

Dino Martiniello, Camp Leader

“The Don Bosco Camp community is such an awesome community to be a part of. Being a part of this community and leading on camps has given me so many different opportunities to grow and learn new skills, while at the same time creating great memories with friends and providing a supportive environment to challenge myself. Most of all the best part about Don Bosco Camp is it’s so much fun!”

Teaghan Dolan, Camp Leader

“It is impossible to describe the effect don Bosco camp has had on my life. As a camper I developed my imagination, revelling in a world without limits. As a leader, I practiced engaging the imaginations of others, learning to inspire and animate without the need of traditional discipline. Camp and the Salesian experience is the gift that keeps on giving. Absolutely not to be missed.”

Felicity Walter, Camp Leader now St Vincent de Paul Primary School Liaison Officer
