My name is Leanne Conoley and I am the Manager of School Camps Qld . Throughout the year, I come across many children and young people who are living less fortunate lives than a lot of other Aussie kids.
Children who have been:
Children who are victims of domestic violence
Children whose parents are deceased
Children with learning and behavioural difficulties
Children whose job is to look after their disabled parents and or siblings
We want to give these children an opportunity to be "children". 6 Day Holiday Camp camp allows children to play outdoors, learn skills for life and leadership and gives them time to have fun and "be kids".
That is why we need your help. The camp is $499 per child for 6 days and 5 nights and includes all of their meals, accommodation and activities. Our facilitators and leaders are caring and compassionate and share the same goal as I do.
We would love to offer 10 children the opportunity to enjoy and relax, play and unwind after the hardship they have been through.
Throughout the years, I have seen kids come to camp and their lives changed forever. A little girl who was 12 years old couldn't speak, had been the victim of violence. By the end of camp, she was speaking and laughing. Something her foster parents had not seen her do yet.
Two brothers whose mother was dying of Liver Cancer visited us to get some respite. They
laughed and enjoyed their one week of kid life. Unfortunately their mum passed soon after. But they came back to camp many times and were able to get away from the anxiety and stress of life at home without mum.
Please help us to give children this opportunity for a little bit of happiness. We know it will change their lives for the better and give them hope.
Please see the camp below... Here is an amazing adventure for underprivileged kids.
