Region Activity Weekeds

Once a school term, youth from all over the region travel to Camp Barrabadeen on Tinaroo Dam to take part in an outdoor activities weekend.

The activities range from canoeing and sailing, to archery and rock climbing. As the youth get older they can focus on a skill of their choice and work towards higher skill levels.

The below video is some high lights of region activity weekend.
