Bellingen Environmental Youth Experience (EYE) is running a Bush Skills and Leadership Camp for young people 15–20 y.o from across NSW. This camp and has a strong youth-led, adult guided focus. Participants will learn new bush skills, teamwork skills and campaign skills.
Experienced mentors will bring their skills along to share with participants and there will be plenty of opportunity to get to know other young people who care for nature as much as you do. Activities include games to build your nature awareness skills, eco-crafts, bush cooking, and campaign skills.
Held at Cascade Environmental Education Centre and its beautiful surrounds, the camp will provide plenty of opportunity to have fun with other young people, reconnect with the bush and remember why its worth saving. Accomodation is in dormitories and camping.
Registration is essential and places are limited.
Bellingen EYE is a group of young people from Bellingen passionate about the environment, and their latest campaign is ‘Youth Against Plastic’ (YAP). YAP have been working towards a ban on single use plastic bags in NSW for a while now and are surprised that NSW is the only state in Australia not to have a ban.
This camp is designed to reinvigorate this issue and encourage action from young people across the state to work towards a future that is fantastic – not plastic!
EYE are interested in meeting with other young people towards a plastic free future and need their help with this campaign.
