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 firstname.lastname@example.org
This camp is made possible thanks to funding from Life Unlimited.
