Girls 7-11yrs and their Fathers
Yarrakoora, Byron Bay Hinterland, NSW, Australia
The Father Daughter Camp is a facilitated overnight bush camp set in the spectacular Byron Bay hinterland. The program – designed for girls aged 7-11 and their fathers – provides a great opportunity for fun and adventure with Dr Arne’s team.
It also offers a safe, distraction free environment for fathers and their daughters to share one on one time together, which is so important yet often so rare it today’s busy world. We have created a beautiful, natural and safe place for you to really show your daughter how much you appreciate her and gain a better understanding of her needs as she grows into a young woman.
The camp includes lots of interesting and fun activities, and we also set aside some time to support dads to think about what they need to do to give their daughters the energy, attention and guidance they need at this important time in their development.
“Taking the time to acknowledge and appreciate my daughter has been immensely rewarding. It's been an inspiration for us both to shift our relationship and behaviors to come into line with what she really needs in this stage of her life”.
“This camp was one of the most perfect platforms to help build and maintain a strong healthy relationship with my daughter as she is growing into a beautiful young woman. No distractions in nature and plenty of opportunity to cultivate presence with my daughter.”
“The camp experience opened my eyes to the things that are important. The opportunity to devote all my energy to my daughter and seeing the difference it made was invaluable. It is only one of many treasures I gained from the camp. Thank you.”
The Father and Daughter program involves an overnight bush camp for girls aged 7-11yrs and their father.
On the camp itself the girls and their fathers spend time together in a fun and safe environment, story telling, playing games and participating in other activities. Facilitators also spend time supporting the fathers to think about what they need to do to support their daughters as they become young women.
