We assist young people make a healthy and timely transition from boy to young man and girl to young woman and have led the resurgence of contemporary Rites of Passage Programs throughout Australia for 30 years.

Thousands of young people and their families have experienced an empowered journey into adulthood and developed connected resilience through self-awareness with quality assured, cutting edge Programs.  We provide young people and their parents a real experience that paves the way for deeper bonds, insights and communication. 

This transition can see boys and girls struggle as they seek to discover who they are.  Join us for a meaningful and fun time away in a bush setting to reflect on who they are, in family, with peers, in community and in their world. 

Pathways Foundation also has a YoungSTARS Program for younger children aged 7-12, Leadership Training Programs and Volunteer and support opportunities.  Find out more as The Journey Begins Here!

Camp Updates for 2020 and 2021

As a result of the recent new requirements for COVID-19 the Pathways Foundation Board has had to make the difficult decision to cancel all the upcoming Programs for 2020. All the participant families, staff and volunteers were looking forward to these Programs running so we share your disappointment, but the safety and wellbeing of our participants is most important.

Please find our 2021 Program dates here.

In the meantime, we are working hard to keep our young people, families and staff connected with online options ensuring our experience and knowledge as an organisation can support in any way we can.

Pathways will continue to stay in touch with all participant families and encourage any parents who are considering supporting their children to get in touch and learn more about life changing Programs.
