Kids Summer Camp 2019

Kids Summer Camp 2019


Kids Summer Camp offers up to 20 children from all over New Zealand a chance to try new activities and make some lasting friendships. Blind Foundation staff that specialize in child development, sport and recreation activities and social development will be making sure everyone has the best time possible. Volunteers that were once children on camp themselves act as role models ensuring everything runs smoothly.

Who can attend?

Blind Foundation members aged 8 – 14 years that are independent in self-care and mobility. Children must be able to follow verbal instructions and add to social situations.

What can you expect?

A fun packed week, with plenty of opportunities to try new sports and camp activities. Some of these could include goalball, challenge ropes, swimming, tandem biking, arts and crafts, kayaking and waterslide.
Kids will stay in cabin style bunkrooms; have plenty of good food and enjoy evening talent shows, dancing and dress-ups.

How much?

$200 or 3 days ‘Carer Support’
