The Parent Project

29 Jan, 2018

We have joined forces with The Leeuwin Foundation to create an extraordinary and unique family voyage experience. Our experienced facilitators will support you to strengthen your family connections and increase the flow of communication, in a safe, supportive and fun environment.

There is no doubt negotiating the teenage years can sometimes be challenging, and occasionally even overwhelming. Staying connected as a family and keeping the lines of communication open are essential to having a healthy and happy family.

Join us on board the Leeuwin to learn a range of skills that will help improve your family communication and build strong relationships – all the while enjoying the thrills and adventure of life at sea aboard WA’s very own tall ship, the STS Leeuwin II! The voyage will run from 3 - 5 of March, 2018.

COST: $650 per person.

APPLICATION FORM:. One application per family member needs to be filled out.
