First on-Country children’s camp in Karajini

Posted: April 15th, 2016



In partnership with the Nintirri Centre, IBN Corporation will be hosting the first on-Country children’s cultural camp in Karajini National Park.

Camp Kurlungka, part of the fourth annual Karijini experience, will run between 15 and 22 April 2016. The camp is designed for 10 to 15 year olds, and IBN Corporation says it is a project meant to lay the groundwork for an expanded program in the future.

The camp will offer a variety of activities, including traditional tool making, throwing, astronomy, bush walking and interaction with local Elders. Health and fitness programs like team sports, yoga and a bush tucker cooking class with Indigenous celebrity chef Mark Olive is on offer.

The days will end with an exciting line up of musicians, and throughout the week campers will be working with renowned Indigenous opera singer Deborah Cheetham to compose and produce an original song.

IBN Corporation is a not for profit trustee for the Yinhawangka, Banyjima and Nyiyaparli people. You can contact IBN Corporation here to learn more about the camp.
