Experience the Connection to Country: Family Camping Adventure with Aboriginal Culture

For thousands of years First Nations People have cared for and managed these lands, carefully cultivating intricate and sophisticated knowledge systems based on the fundamental belief that we are connected to all things.

This overnight experience is specifically designed for families with children. Once the basics are covered you'll then participate in specially selected activities designed to teach you and your children more about Aboriginal people and culture and how to cultivate your own connection to Country.

Activities include:

  • Fire making / safety
  • Set-up / pack-up
  • General safety advice
  • Bush craft
  • Story time
  • Night walk

Guided mindfulness activities include:

  • Creating your connection to Country
  • Guided 'listening to Country' bush walks

Participants will gain an increased awareness of Aboriginal People and culture and come away feeling welcome and safe on Country, connected to the land and empowered to take their friends and family camping. 

You'll also receive 20% off all Yilam On Country products!

Target audience: Families with children ages 5+

Location: Yilam Connecting to Country experiences are located on the lands of the Taungurung People including the Seymour & Broadford areas

Price Inclusions

Rather than having a pre-set calendar we now offer ‘booking by request’ - that way we can be more flexible with the dates and do more midweek options to better suit your needs/preferences.

  • Guide fees
  • Activities and materials
  • Meals 
  • Tent & bedding (unless you prefer to BYO)
  • Camp Chair (unless you prefer to BYO)
  • Shared utensils (unless you prefer to BYO)

Participants must secure their own transport to and from the camp site and bring their own toiletries/torch etc. (full list of items will be provided prior to trip)

Any children in attendance must be accompanied by their legal guardian and are the sole responsibility of said legal guardian. 

You'll meet the guides at the pick-up point at 11:00am and then head to camp - experience closes at 10:30am the following day.
