Our Indigenous Kids camp is for young people aged 8-12 years old. The program includes bike riding, rock climbing, arts and crafts and games. There will be an afternoon of cultural activities to connect the participants to land and culture. Through positive interaction and fun activities, our volunteers will develop the children's social skills and their resilience. Participants will make new friends, have fun and create lasting memories. The one-to-one ratio, of volunteers to participants, gives the young people a safe and supportive space to thrive.
Date: Tuesday 3 April - Friday 6 April, 2018
Our volunteers are able to work with a variety of different behaviours presented by the young people. If you’re unsure whether you client would be suitable, please contact the office to discuss.
