The SEA Life Journal

Central to the SEA Life Program is a professionally designed 24 page color journal given to all children on arrival. The journal provides a great way to share information and for children to record daily highlights and thoughts.

The diary pages at the back of the journal are good. The layout and content are fantastic. We were a pretty loud camp, but as soon as they received their booklets (on camp) they went all quiet and were completely engrossed. Ultimately the kids are the biggest indicator that the layout is interesting and attractive."

Setting Goals

A key outcome of the SEA Life program is to challenge children to set three goals that will help them practically implement simple strategies to live healthier.

The journal provides examples relevant for children which they can select or they can write their own goals. Children are encouraged to implement these goals for two weeks when they return home from camp.

The journal and website provides a 2 week post camp diary for tracking progress.
