An eye for nature and bush skills awaits

IMMERSE yourself in nature, raise awareness and hone bush skills at the Environmental Youth Experience (EYE) camp.

Due to requests from enthusiastic young nature lovers, the first Junior EYE camp of 2011 will be held on the Coffs Coast earlier than usual.

Youth in Years 7 and 8 are invited to embark on a bush adventure on the weekend of April 1 to 3.

The camp is called ‘EYEventure: Intro to Bush Skills’ and will be a weekend of hanging out in nature, practising new nature awareness skills, learning what is happening to our planet and meeting new friends.

EYE co-ordinator Lisa Siegel said the camp would be run by an experienced and knowledgeable team.

“The team is made up of adult environmental educators and senior EYE youth leaders,” Ms Siegel said.

“Mt Hyland Wilderness Retreat which is one and a half hours from Bellingen is a great place to experience beautiful nature by day and have a comfy bed at night.

“There is a camp scholarship fund available and one of EYE’s policies is that no one should miss a camp due to financial hardship.”

Registrations are now open but get in quick because there are limited places and the policy is ‘first in best dressed’.

The cost is $150 which includes transport by bus, lodging, tuition, materials and all meals.

To register email info@bellingeneye.com or call 0423 362 844 and leave a message with your name and details.

You will be contacted either by email or phone and told whether you have a place or if you are on the waiting list.

If you have a place, you will receive a registration form to fill in and the form and final payment must be received by Wednesday March 23 to secure your place.

For more information about the registration process or scholarship fund contact Lisa at info@bellingeneye.com or 0423 362 844.
