Waikato SibCamp – FULL
Feb 8 @ 6:30 pm – Feb 10 @ 3:30 pm

This camp is FULL and registrations are now closed.

SibCamp is a wonderful opportunity for kids who have a brother or sister with a disability or health issue to have a fun weekend away.

Siblings will learn strategies, share experiences, enjoy outdoor activities and make friends with other kids in similar situations.

There is a great need for SibCamps and our waiting lists can get very long. To avoid anyone missing out, we require a $25 contribution to ensure all available spaces are filled and secured.

Siblings should be aged 8-18 at the time of camp and must not have a disability or health impairment themselves.

If you would like to discuss anything please phone 0508 236 236 or contact Helen at waikato@parent2parent.org.nz

This camp is made possible thanks to funding from Life Unlimited.
