The Spring 2017 Recre8 Program is for 14-19 year old vulnerable, traumatised and at-risk young men in the Northern Rivers NSW and Southern Gold Coast regions. Centred around a fun and adventurous ten-day hiking & canoeing expedition, it is an early-intervention opportunity for young people who want to work through challenges they may be facing internally, at home, at school, and in their community – to build a better life for themselves.

It combines a fun and life-affirming adventure with professional therapeutic counselling and support to help young people re-evaluate and recreate their lives.
