I have an amazing son, aged 15, who sometimes struggles to settle into group activities. He went on a school camp last year, which was an experience he was so glad to put behind him - he hated it! I had to go and fetch him after the first night of camp, as the teachers, his peers, and most importantly my son, was having such a dismal time (he actually slept in a teachers room that night and not with his peer group, that's how much he was battling).
A few months later, being the courageous boy that he is, he put his hand up to go on a 5 day camp with Angus Lowe. I did some reading on the Angus Lowe Experience and it seemed, in my head, to be way out of his comfort zone - how wrong I was. I had no direct contact with him for 5 days, and I was dreading him getting off the bus when he returned, expecting tears and relief to be back, but it was quite the opposite. He jumped off that bus completely elated, excited and energized. He said it was the best experience of his life. He learnt so much about himself in the space of 5 days, he was accepted as he was, yet guided to bring the best out of himself. I am so happy that he got to experience inclusion on this camp, how valued he felt, and how he cannot wait for the next Angus Lowe excursion. a BIG SHOUTOUT to Angus Lowe and your team, you guys do amazing things with our children, thank you!
I highly recommend that all parents consider sending their children on a camp with with Angus and his team, the pure joy and growth that your son or daughter will come to know after only a few days will be such a blessing. I wish I was 15 again :-).
