Experience the camp for yourself...
It is with pleasure that we invite children between the ages of 5 to 15 to participate in our 24th Annual Ignatian Children’s Holiday Camp. The camp is a four-day residential camp for children with disabilities. It is to be held at Saint Ignatius’ College, Riverview, from December 7-10, 2023 (Thursday to Sunday).
The camp provides four days of care, friendship and entertainment for the children. It also provides some respite for families as senior students volunteer to take on the role of carers for the duration of the camp. Each participating child has a full time carer who is in turn supported by a team of Riverview staff, volunteers and medical facilitators. The camp offers extensive on-site facilities, twenty-four hour medical staff and care of the highest standard.
For the children, the camp is one of fun, with ferry rides, swimming, picnics, parties, music and games. There is no cost involved in participation. If you know of children and families in your community who would benefit from participation in the camp could you please direct them to our website, or get in touch with us and we will forward an information package directly to them. We also have the facilities to offer family accommodation for rural families over the camp period.
As you would understand, the 35 places for the camp are easily filled so a prompt return of application forms is advisable.
"When we were given the brochure for the camp my reaction was 'No way!'... [when we returned] at the end of camp we found an extremely happy BJ who had not only survived, but thrived without us. "
