Our Culcha Camps specialise in providing a blended learning experience that awakens your senses and sees you starting your learning journey in the classroom setting, then spilling out onto the Flats at Mooroopna on the Goulburn River, or into the stunning Barmah National Park on the banks of the Murray River.
Our Culcha Camps Team
Our Culcha Camps team includes brothers Larry and Len Jackson, the wonderful Uncle Colin Walker (Yorta Yorta Elder), and Robynne Nelson.
This team of four has a wealth of knowledge with over 170 years experience between them.
Culcha Camps provide you with the opportunity for cultural competency learning, with Robynne; then heading bush with Larry and Len to spend time at the Flats at Mooroopna. You’ll travel to Barmah National Park to camp on the banks of the Murray River and spend time with Uncle Col Walker learning about life in the bush.
Then it’s time to relax with some debriefing around the camp fire. This is a chance to talk about specific issues relating to your work with Aboriginal communities.
You’ll then spend some time fishing, catch and cook, gathering muscles, cooking damper, painting clapsticks, playing didjeridoos and yarning about your life and work experiences.
This is a chance to bring along any challenging issues for discussion amongst the group, to jointly come up with some solutions.
Or to spend some one-on-one time with one of our Elders to walk and talk.
What a way to learn!
