The Vision Of IGNITE Camp

For every young person to feel known, loved and empowered to take action in their own life, family and community.

Equipping Young People

Ignite Junior Camp is a school holiday camp held over the Victorian September school holidays. Ignite is designed to make sure every young person feels known, loved and empowered to take action in their own life, family and community.

Our facilitators are trained to create a safe space for all young people to connect and give them the attention they deserve.

Ignite runs in partnership with Burn Bright, which brings with it over 10 years of knowledge in running camps, school programs and community activities.

With the support of Heather Yelland and our team, your young person will understand the foundation of who they are and embrace that understanding for any challenge that may come their way.
