It’s important for every young boy to spend quality time with their Father or main male mentor. The Young Warriors Camp is a perfect opportunity for fathers and sons to connect and get away from the normal distractions and stresses of day-to-day life.
During this overnight camp set in the spectacular Byron Bay hinterland you will enjoy fun and adventure, whilst also participating in specially designed activities created by Dr Arne to develop stronger father son bonds.
As your son approaches his teenage years it’s crucial that you are able to communicate and understand what he needs at this stage in his life and The Young Warriors camp is the perfect way to do this. It will be a positive life changing experience for both of you.
“The weekend was life changing on many levels; connecting and better understanding my son, meeting other fathers who are all going on a similar journey. Trusting that with the skills of Dr. Arne and his excellent team that we can make a positive difference together to the wellbeing of our offspring. I cannot recommend Young Warriors highly enough and cannot wait until my boy is 14 so that we can do the next level.”
“It was the best weekend ever, I had so much fun and it was such a good time!”
“Young Warriors camp was fantastic for my sons self esteem and it allowed me to reflect on my parenting and connect with my son more.”
The Young Warriors program involves an overnight bush camp for boys aged 7-11 and their father/mentor. On the camp itself the men and boys spend time together in a fun and safe environment, learning, sharing stories and participating in specifically designed activities.

The best person to take your boy on a camp is his father, but we are aware that this is not always an available option. A grandfather, uncle or other close male family member is ideal, or a male family friend actively involved in your boy’s life. If this is not available, we will try to arrange a meeting with a suitable male mentor who may accompany your boy on a camp. We are happy to talk personally with you if required.
No it is very important that the father/mentor is able to give full attention to his boy. Past participants often return a second time with their other boy.
