Esperance Hope Community Services holds bush camp at Quagi Beach

Esperance Hope Community Services held a family support bush camp at Quagi Beach on October 3 and 4.

Esperance Hope manager Aubrey Davies said the camp was about inclusion, connection and giving attendees the opportunity to engage with other members of the community.

Activities on the camp included fishing, walking, creating shell mobiles, cooking and many interactive tasks and games.

Campers were also given a list of 25 things to do, including spot a dolphin or whale, walk barefoot on the sand and name an indigenous plant. 

Esperance Hope counsellor and prevention officer Suzanne Pinker said the camp allowed people to be responsible, while working with others.

“It was about getting out there as a diverse group of people and interacting together,” she said.

“Despite the terrible weather, it couldn’t have gone any better and the feedback was very positive.

“We will be doing another camp.”

The camp was sponsored by Southern Ports, IGO, Bankwest and CBH.
