Youth Camps in big demand
Youth Camps are in big demand from both young people and adults in remote communities. The camps connect people with land, culture and new skills. Recently, a young mans camp was run at a site near the Umutju road. This road was a major migration track for thousands of years across the Peterman Ranges running near important waterholes and sites.
The Mutitjulu Community Rangers are Anangu that work for Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. They carry out seasonal land and fire management activities, patch burning, fauna surveys and park facilities maintenance. The Rangers took the guys out to a special site that needed caring for. A nearby waterhole clogged by years of dirt was causing local animals to perish in great numbers. The guys worked hard at cleaning out the waterhole and were also taught how to burn buffel grass safely.
