Our Captain Courage project gives brave young boys a chance to participate in adventurous and fun outdoor activities. The project encourages these little boys to keep up their fighting spirit, no matter how serious their illness may be. It allows them to take time-out of their daily treatment and the boredom of hospital wards and spend a day filled with adrenaline and adventure.
The brave boys get honoured with a Captain Courage medal and a certificate of bravery for having the courage to participate in the activities. The medal is a reminder that they can overcome anything and that includes their illness.
The branches host different types of Captain Courage events according to their surroundings. A Captain Courage could be spent at a Fire station, riding elephants, flying in an airplane, doing an obstacle course, zip lining, a 4x4 adventure, wall climbing, horseback riding, engaging with wild animals, riding on Harley Davidsons, to name a few.
