Children with Disabilities Camps

Camp Breakaway currently holds two of these camps each year.

Up to 16 children attend each camp.

These three-day weekend camps provide respite for children with physical disabilities.

We have a small army of dedicated volunteers who make these camps a reality.

Key Objectives

  • Having fun - by providing new, exciting and interactive activities and entertainment.
  • Increasing self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities.
  • To give the child with the disability a chance to mix with other children in a similar situation. This often leads to the formation of new friendships that continue after the camp ends.
  • To create opportunities for volunteers to make a meaningful contribution to their community.
  • To allow the parents and siblings to have some much needed time-out.

Activities

Children's activities include; a disco, a reptile show, cooking fun, drumming, sports, the Liberty Swing and a wide range of games.
