Blue Light

Life Skills Programme

Blue Light’s Life Skills programme is for young people aged 14-17 years and is run in partnership with the NZ Defence Force Youth Development Unit.

Up to 12 programmes are run each year in four locations across New Zealand –  Whenuapai, Central, Trentham and Burnham.

Designed as a five-day, residential camp, young people learn essential life skills including:

  • Teamwork
  • Communication including active listening
  • Self-management
  • Self-confidence

Young people enjoy experiential recreational activities designed to challenge themselves, and learn trust and responsibility.

Participants in the programme can earn up to 13 NCEA credits – 4 level one and 9 level two.
