Applications Open for an Internship in Queensland Outdoor Education

The Blackall Range has a place of great importance in our nation’s history.  It is a place of abundance and hosted the regular Bunya Festival – a relational corroboree where stories and skills were exchanged, conflicts resolved and stories told.  Working with several prominent Aboriginal Christians the QCCC CAMPFIRE discipleship program is an attempt to resurrect the legacy of our continent’s original inhabitants within the context of Outdoor Education and Recreation.  This program is an inseparable combination of Christian discipleship, Aboriginal story, training in Outdoor Education and community life. 

Graduates from the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Centre Internship program

In the first year the focus is on discipleship from several spiritual mentors and a significant component of a Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation (SIS30413) from Malyon Vocational Training.   At the end of the first year an individual program for the second year will be discussed and implemented between student and mentors, incorporating continued mentoring and discipleship, mission trips and work in Outdoor Education completing the Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation and possibly some elements of a Certificate IV in Outdoor Recreation (SIS40313).
