Travellers Resilience Camp


In March 2018, Skylight will be holding its first ever Travellers Resilience Camp. The Warehouse has generously agreed to sponsor students from their Region 5 division to attend a weekend camp at Lakes Ranch, Rotorua. This camp will be centered around themes that are present in the Travellers programme, like resilience, collaboration and connectedness, and positive thinking. 

Skylight is very grateful for this funding and for its partnership with The Warehouse - it is an incredible experience for students going through hard times.

Skylight Resources

The Skylight support centre offers a wide range of specialist information about the different ways change, loss, trauma and grief can affect children, young people, adults and their families and friends. It also offers information, resources and ideas about ways to deal with those effects, and ways to best support people of all ages when they're facing tough times. We work hard to keep up to date and to know where to look if we don't have what you need here at the Centre.

Here are just a few of the topics that we have resources for:

  • Blended Famlies
  • Family Break-up
  • Abuse and Violence
  • Trauma and Disaster
  • Pet Loss Support
