On the first weekend of March, in partnership with the Outdoor Education Foundation, we held the inaugural ‘Fun and Friendship’ camp. Forty young women from three northern city schools went to Camp Jungai for a fun-filled weekend, making new friends and building connections to place and people.

The Alice Sloan Expedition and Leadership Program has been independently evaluated by Victoria University. This evaluation aimed to explore participant experiences and outcomes. Specifically, evaluating if, and how, the program contributed towards developing empowerment and leadership. The findings indicate that camp participation led to perceptions of enhanced empowerment and leadership, and a sense of community, which all contributed positively to personal outcomes. We are very proud of these findings and thank all Alice Sloan Trust supporters for contributing to the existence of this program.
