What to expect?
Every night at Boys' Brigade is different! We run a varied program that includes a mix of life skills development (e.g., mechanics/woodwork, cooking, public speaking, knot tying, outdoor survival skills), physical development (e.g., most mainstream sports, wrestling, general athletics), cognitive development (e.g., Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics [STEM] projects), discipline (e.g., uniform deportment, drill/marching) and respect (e.g., team building activities and challenges, fundraising and service to community).
We also run local camps. Recent camps have included the following themes; Survival of the Fittest, Gone Fishin' at Karumba, Fear Factor Company Camp, Lawn Hill and Spring Creek Expeditions. Membership of our company also gives the boys the ability to participate in state and nationally run camps. For more information on these camps head to the Boys' Brigade Queensland and Boys' Brigade Australia websites listed below.
