Aboriginal Youth Camps

​Dumbartung offers a wide range of Cultural activities throughout the year. The main activity is the Aboriginal Youth camps called camp Biarra.

The camps are co-ordinated twice a year and cater for up to twenty young people including a number of youth participants.

The camps are attended primarily by young Aboriginal children who have been placed in Non Aboriginal foster placements, and are designed to help foster​ and encourage young people in their cultural identity, building up a strong sense of identity and resilience.

Aboriginal Art and Photographic Classes

​Dumbartung co-ordinates four major art courses per year​ and a photographic course. The art courses are run at the organisation whilst the photographic course is usually co-ordinated outside the site.

The art courses are specifically targeted at state based schools and also includes Catholic based secondary facilities with high Aboriginal student populations.
