Discovery for Teens is 7-days/6-nights for 14-18-year-olds run during school holidays. One-third of the programme focuses on academic skills: study skills, speed reading and exam strategies. Two-thirds focuses on life skills. The life skills components include communication, relationships, leadership, goal setting/planning and teamwork. Discovery is also designed to give teens increased confidence and a toolbox of strategies to help them overcome challenges and navigate the difficult teen years. Teens come out with improved self-confidence, motivation and commitment. Discovery is full of activity-based experiences and includes a parent’s day workshop on the final day of the programme. We have a minimum ratio of one staff member for every four teenagers, ensuring that the teens are fully supported through their Discovery journey. We are also able to accommodate special dietary requirements, e.g. gluten free, dairy free etc.
