About the event

Unplug and connect with nature, yourself and others!

An inclusive hands-on adventure in nature for those aged 12-17 years in Samford Valley.    Youth in Nature is an immersive experience encouraging physical activity and nature connection.  Youth undertake activities that help them engage with the natural world in holistic ways.  

Sessions include exploration of the natural environment, primitive technologies, eco arts, natural weaving, shelter building, whittling, rope swings,  swimming, raft building, and campfire cooking.  'Youth in Nature' is coordinated by outdoor professionals and targets social and emotional development, increased physical fitness, developing an appreciation for nature, improved mental health, and exposure to manageable risk.

Samford Parklands is a beautiful venue where the upper South Pine River gently flows through native bushland and remnant rainforest.
