The first Camp Courage is being run from Friday 12th July until Sunday 14th at Ivory’s Rock. It is Australia’s first courage development camp for teen girls, designed to help them develop key skills for success. During the camp, set in the idyllic surroundings of Ivory’s Rock, teen girls will learn invaluable skills and attitudes from mentors like Ky Thurneaux, award-winning Hollywood stunt artist and author of “Girls Own Survival guide”. 7News recently did a piece about the camp and spoke with Ky.
She's worked on Hollywood blockbusters like X Men, The Avengers and Thor, now a former stunt-woman is teaching Queensland girls about courage. It's part of a program designed to empower the next generation, with plans to roll it out, across the country. #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/7FI3jIyXsh

The camp will be run by Tanya Meesman, Founder of FUEL Girl Shaped Flames, internationally recognised Communications Expert and award-winning Film Producer. Tanya is an outstanding achiever and for the last ten years has juggled the production of feature films and commercials with providing client services for internationally renowned clients. In 2015 she took on the position of Head of Production at a feature film company in Sydney. However, it was her mentoring of younger women that gave her the greatest fulfilment and so she founded FUEL Girl Shaped Flames.
Other mentors are Laura Gervais who successfully circumnavigated the world and Amanda Rootsey, cancer survivor and founder of Shine From Within. Ivory's Rock Foundation are very supportive of the program that will provide the girls with confidence and strategies for leadership and motivation, leaving them with the increased courage and skills to succeed in school, relationships, work and life.
