    Are you growing up deaf or hard of hearing and you’re indigenous? Then you and your family are welcome to join us for this fantastic camp experience!

    Deaf Children Australia (DCA) is excited to partner with Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Inc. (VAEAI) for this great camp with fun cultural, social and recreation activities that will strengthen participants’ sense of identity as proud young deaf indigenous people.

    Make new friends who share similar experiences. Visit the Brambuk National Park and Cultural Centre, and learn more about the cultural significance of Gariwerd. Talk about being strong and deadly!

    The camp is free, including all activities, food and accommodation.

    You will need to make your own way to Halls Gap or Stawell. DCA will have a shuttle service available from Stawell Train Station to Halls Gap. Talk to us about your travel plans in case we can coordinate with other camp participants. We have a small amount of funds to assist with transport so if needed, please ask when you register.

    Applications close Friday 12 October. Get in soon so you don’t miss out!
