In the afternoon there will be a session on the cultural history of the area incorporating indigenous story time at night around a camp fire, with a bush BBQ.
The second day will be facilitator led interactive session getting the young people to explore how the group can influence and shape their own community, looking at the skills needed to be an effective leader. In the afternoon the facilitator would run a team building session, where there are different challenges/puzzles for the groups to complete. These activities will encourage them to work as a team with one voice.

The particpants ran their own “Youth Tent” at the Blues for the Bush event and presented at the event which was a great opportunity to practice public speaking, whilst improving their team work and leadership skills. This projects connects young people with the land and away from technology and teaches them important life skills.
