Apex Camps offers a special 3 day 2 night Student Leadership Program for High School Students


Student Leadership Program


Our Student Leadership Program — NEW in 2020 — is a specially tailored personal, leadership and team development program for school students that draws on the best global practices for leadership valuing people and purpose over profit.

Building on our 35 years of working with schools, we are delighted to partner with Jo Brand and Dan Leitch, from The Conscious Brand, to exclusively offer Australian schools and youth organisations the Live your Greatness Youth Leadership Program. Over the past 5 years, Brisbane-based, Jo, has helped over 175,000 people across the world become Conscious Leaders — leaders who intentionally and actively nurture positive values, relationships and experiences.

This 3-day 2-night residential program combines highly innovative and targetted learning with fun outdoor activities and challenges to develop motivated and empowered leaders across Years 6 — 12. Students will gain the skills to make significant and positive impact within their roles in your school as well as be a promising leader of the future. This unique program will be a pivotal time in their lives.

Bookings are now OPEN and can be made HERE, as can inquiries.

The program has 2 overarching aims:

  • To build Conscious Leaders for the future – in effect, awaken the leader within.

Why is the program so important right now?

Our young people are living in a time that is vastly different to that of just two decades ago. Due to advances in technology and changes to the social dynamic they are more aware of global issues and can feel more desperate and stressed about the world and their place in it.

How can they channel all of this to create a brighter, more sustainable future for everyone?
