FATHERING ADVENTURES

QCCC has partnered with Fathering Adventures since 2011 to bring their influential Fathering Adventure Weekends to South East Queensland. Facilitated by Darren Lewis, Queensland Father of the Year in 2011, these weekends are the ideal time to bond fathers with their children over a life-changing weekend. It’s a jam-packed weekend of quality time, adventure and throughout the weekend fathers receive some basic coaching on what it means to be an “intentional” father. You will be armed with all of the tools you need, to ensure your son knows deep in his heart, that he truly is, your “beloved son”. The next two Fathering Adventures weekends at QCCC venues are:

Dad and Daughter Weekend: 8-10 September 2017 at QCCC Tamborine.

Father-Son Weekend: 10-12 November 2017 at QCCC Mapleton.

CULTURAL AWARENESS (GOOMBUCKAR)

Aboriginal Australians have a long-term connection with our land and an important heritage of cooperation with nature, necessary to survive in a harsh land. QCCC acknowledges the original ownership and custodianship of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their continuing cultures and the valuable contribution Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples make to our contemporary society. As part of our efforts towards reconciliation QCCC is proud to partner with Aboriginal Groups to host their events and to facilitate greater understanding between cultures. The Goombuckar Dancers group are empowered to provide Cultural Awareness classes and Indigenous Art workshops at QCCC sites.
