Teens figure out strengths at Beaufort SuperCamp

Sixty-five young adults from around the world have had an experience to remember, after taking part in a leadership and education camp near Ballarat.

The annual 10-day senior Green SuperCamp, which took place at Cave Hill Creek in Beaufort, had its graduation ceremony on Saturday. 

Green SuperCamp Director Heather Yelland said the camp had three key focuses: personal leadership, academic acceleration and environmental awareness.

This year, attendees also heard from young Adelaide Strikers cricketer Trent Lawford about the importance of finding a passion and following your dreams.

The camp wasn't just for locals, with 14 to 17-year-olds from New Zealand, the UK, Malaysia and Sri Lanka also taking part.

Ms Yelland said many of the activities - which include communication, creative thinking, and goal-setting exercises - help the attendees gain a better understanding of themselves.

"We help them figure out their strengths and what they want to do with their lives, which is pretty tough for a young person to do," she said.
