Youth Project Tasmania: Dooloomai's mission is to provide the
opportunity for young people to develop an awareness and appreciation of
themselves and others to enable them to make more informed decisions about
their lives. Dooloomai is located in Australia, in the foothills of
Tasmania's scenic Ben Lomond. The project commenced in 1993 with
inspiration provided by a combination of the "Mittagundi" and "Wollangara"
experiences from Victoria, Australia and to a lesser extent from other
models such as Project Adventure, Outward Bound, and
Project Hahn. Since that time Dooloomai has provided opportunities for
young people in tailor made activities and pursuits with support from
professional outdoor leaders and trained volunteers.
Project Hahn was established in 1983, in Tasmania, Australia. Through
participation in wilderness activities Project Hahn encourages young people
to develop social skills and personal qualities required for living and
working as mature citizens in an increasingly complex society. Project
Hahn's ethos is based on Kurt Hahn's philosophies
in founding Outward Bound. Adventure therapy, wilderness therapy and
adventure based counselling are all terms used in other parts of the world
that are representive of the model of practice encompassed by Project Hahn
that we refer to as 'bush counselling'.
Wilderness Opportunities: offers
team building & leadership programs for pre-existing peer groups, 7 day
