Research shows that optimistic and resilient people are happier, healthier and live longer. People with good wellbeing are also better equipped to adapt to change, complexity and adversity and build more productive relationships. It’s clear that when we feel good, we do better!
These proven principles of positive psychology form the foundations of everything we do at Camp Quality. To support our staff and volunteers to be consistently resilient and optimistic, we collaborated with world-leading psychologists and consultants to create a science-based wellbeing program known as ORANGES.
The ORANGES program was originally delivered as engaging 2-day workshops based on the science of positive psychology, emotional intelligence and neuroscience, linked to academic research from the world’s leading universities such as Harvard, Stanford, Pennsylvania, Melbourne and Oxford. It offered measurable outcomes and evidence-informed practical tools that could be immediately implemented to improve wellbeing, collaboration and performance.
The ORANGES program was so effective, that in 2017 we decided to share it with our partners and other organisations through the establishment of our social enterprise, The Oranges Toolkit.
