What is Phoenix?

Phoenix is a place where you can be safe, engage in activities and be happy. We are a 12 place setting which will offer you a positive learning experience in an exciting and adventurous rural setting. We use the natural world as a base for building effective and successful relationships.


Each day you will have activities in Adventure, Life and Creative. You will work on your own personal Phoenix Pathway, collating your work in your own Phoenix Journal. At the end of the Phoenix experience we will celebrate your achievements
