Sea Eagles Foundation was established in 2010 to raise funds and to develop and run programs that encourage, educate and advance healthy lifestyles, healthy eating habits and physical activity for young people and their families with a major focus on supporting children with Type 1 Diabetes and Indigenous youth.
BUSH TO BEACH INDIGENOUS CAMPS
Bush to Beach camps reward students who display improved behaviors, increased school attendance and showed improved commitment to their community in the past year. The camps include mentoring elements, education on healthy lifestyle choices, workshops on self esteem, self worth and becoming a leader in their community and address mental health issue and support available. Our players and coaching staff are heavily involved in all sessions across the camp period.
Our endeavor is provide guidance and education to “at risk” indigenous youth in the hope they will make better choices in life at that vital pre High School age and improve their own leadership and mentoring skills leading into secondary education years. We also include teachers and local law enforcement personnel in the camp to encourage a supportive and respectful relationship with authority figures and these children.
KIDS WITH DIABETES CAMPS
Funded by the Sea Eagles Foundation our Kids with Diabetes Camps are for kids with Type1 Diabetes, both local and country kids ranging from 9 – 16 years of age. The four day program includes information sessions, recreation activities and an introduction to new diabetes management techniques. The children are identified through our partnership with Royal Far West and the camps are facilitated by clinical staff from Royal Far West.
Brett Stewart has a passion for supporting kids with Type1 Diabetes and the Sea Eagles Foundation will continue to support Brett’s camps.
