Murrindindi Youth Co-Lead Camp
Published on 13 August 2019
These school holidays, Murrindindi Shire Council is running an overnight camp on Tuesday 1 and Wednesday 2 October at Kinglake Forest Adventures for high school-aged young people living in Murrindindi Shire.
The ‘Murrindindi Youth Co-Lead Camp’ will include team building exercises, personal development activities and a session focusing on developing a new Youth Leadership Program, which Council is planning to run over a six-month period in 2020 as a pilot for potential future programs.
Murrindindi Shire Council Youth, Recreation and Community Planning Portfolio Councillor Charlie Bisset said it is vital for young people to be involved in how our youth programs are designed and delivered.
“Because every kid and every community is different, the whole idea of this camp is to talk with young people to find out what they would be interested in learning and achieving from a longer-term Youth Leadership Program.
“Murrindindi Youth Co-Lead Camp will provide a fun and creative environment for young people to make new friends, share ideas and enjoy some personal development along the way. Places are limited so we encourage people to apply early,” Cr Bisset said.
