Peter Condon, the founder of Kokoda Courage, and Trek Leader Lee Campbell have commenced the training of 20 young individuals from the Goldfields, Perth metropolitan, and Pilbara regions for the Kokoda Trek.
Sponsored by Y WA, these teenagers participated in the inaugural Kokoda Weekend Challenge, where they quickly grasped the importance of building endurance, leadership skills, and mental resilience for the forthcoming trek later this year.
The comprehensive Kokoda Leadership and Development Program, spanning eight months, will continue to enhance their preparation. It includes rigorous health and fitness training sessions twice a week, along with a personalized diet plan to ensure the young adventurers are adequately equipped.
Following their extensive training, the successful applicants will embark on an unforgettable journey to Papua New Guinea from October 6 to 16, where they will undertake the remarkable Kokoda trek.
