The 2019 Youth Leadership Camp will run from 7:30am on Tuesday 22nd January until 7:30pm on Friday 25th January 2019. This camp will be fully supervised by Youth Support Program Staff from Swan Hill Rural City Council, Swan Hill District Health, Gannawarra Shire Council, Youth Affairs Council Victoria and Robinvale College. Participants of this camp will be aged between 12-25 years old. As part of this camp, participants will attend workshops to build skills in public speaking, peer support, leadership, cultural literacy, teamwork and self reflection.
