Adventure Therapy

Adventure and the great outdoors go hand in hand when it comes to helping people connect, reflect on their lives and explore change. Are you living life to the full and being the best version of you? Perhaps you’re struggling with challenges that are making life and relationships difficult? Maybe you want to develop your leadership skills? Adventure Therapy programs can be a great way to embark on a journey of change, discovery and learn to apply your strengths and increase your wellbeing.

Discovering Relationships Using Music, Beliefs, Emotions, Attitudes, and Thoughts
 

There is something about drumming that brings people together. For thousands of years in ancient cultures the therapeutic nature of drumming allowed people to tell stories, meditate and grow spiritually.
 

In 2003, Holyoake – a leading provider of drug and alcohol counselling and support services – developed a program called DRUMBEAT to use music, psychology and neurobiology to connect with others and build team spirit.
 

Our Adventure Camping team can provide registered facilitators to deliver the DRUMBEAT program at your site, school or another mutually convenient location – we can even drum outdoors! We also have Djembe drums for hire. Contact us to find out more (08) 8388 5234.
