In 1994, we began holding three-day Options Camps, now called Community Camps for Wyong and Gosford Aged Disability Services and Hunter Respite. These camps cater for a variety of different guests, including the frail aged, intellectually delayed, those with dementia and the young disabled. Since then, the number of camps has steadily grown due to their popularity.
Activities at these camps include; barbecues, bingo, bus trips, cooking, craft, discussion groups, games, hand and foot massages, and live entertainment. Our activities officer ensures all guests enjoy a wide range of interesting, entertaining and relaxing activities. In addition, plenty of free time ensures that guests can mingle and enjoy friendship with each other.
Camp Breakaway's professional kitchen staff provide a wide variety of meals and often cater for guests with special dietary needs i.e. diabetic, gluten-free, vegan.
Camp Breakaway employs registered nurses and assistants in nursing to look after Community Camp guests. This includes providing companionship during their stay and attending to their physical needs - oral hygiene, showering, dressing and meal assistance.
Not only do these camps enable us to help people in need, they are self-funding, which allows us to utilise any surplus for other Camp Breakaway projects.
