Cape Fourcroy Camp

Cape Fourcroy Camp

Categories: Training, Wurrumiyanga

In August 2017, participants doing the Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways at Wurrumiyanga organised two-day camp at Cape Fourcroy as part of their course.

Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways (otherwise known as Foundation Skills) is designed for people who need to develop general education, language and literacy skills to a level where they can get a job.

Before the camp, participants had to develop their own training program to teach us how to camp, hunt oysters and fish. They wrote down all the instructions and a list of everything we would need – camping gear, supplies and safety gear. We only took what was on the list.

At the camp, we had to follow the written instructions to set up camp and go hunting and fishing. We all really loved it – we had a ball.
