Gunbalanya Community Care camps out

25 August 2017

Gunbalanya Community Care clients and staff took part in the Oenpelli Camp Out recently.
Run by the NT Carers Respite Remote Program, Gunbalanya Community Care clients were invited to participate in a 5 night camp out held at the ‘big waterfall’ in Gunbalanya. 
Five clients and two NT Carer staff Susan Aiton and Erica Gurner attended with Gunbalanya Community Care Officer Joyce Djogibar also going along. 
Clients Margaret Djogibar, Shirley Kelly, Nell Naborlhborlh, 
Dorothy Nabobbob all attended. 
The clients had a fantastic time camping, enjoying  activities  such as collecting pandanus, collecting roots for colour, and finishing off with a  weaving session. 
They cooked damper around the camp fire, told yarns and had a lot of fun.
A wonderful effort by the NT Carers remote team and Joyce with setting up, cooking and assisting with the activities, then packing everything up. 
It was a great effort and the clients very much appreciated all the hard work.
