Camp Kurlungka – IBN’s on-country kids camp
Camp Kurlungka – Connecting kids with country
Camp Kurlungka is IBNs on-Country children’s cultural camp held in Karijini National Park.
IBN held our first on country kid’s camp, ‘Camp Kurlungka’ in 2016. It was so successful we decided to do it all again in 2017.
The camp gives IBN kids from across the Pilbara the opportunity to spend a week on-country in Karijini learning from elders about culture and language; building new friendships and enjoying new experiences through music, art, food and sport.
This year, highlights included a music lesson from the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, listening to stories from elders, cooking with celebrity chef, Mark Olive, learning how to use a GPS in a cross country walk.
Camp Kurlungka is run by IBN staff and volunteers and generously supported by local organisations who donate their time, expertise and equipment.
