A GREAT ESCAPE AT THE NT FAMILY CAMP
A great and relaxing escape for families facing cancer took place over the last weekend of May. Five families from around the Northern Territory, including Alice Springs, took part in this two-day Camp Quality Family Camp.
The group stayed at the Hidden Valley holiday camp. Everyone enjoyed the free time in the pool and the playground. And if that wasn’t enough they also played fun games such as Simon Says, footy and duck duck goose.
As all this playing made everyone hungry, luckily there was plenty of food to go around. Everyone enjoyed bacon and eggs for breakfast both mornings. There were also plenty of cookies and snacks to go around!
In addition to enjoying time at the campsite, the families also participated in the Aviation Museum tour, played some crazy golf, tried some archery and got involved in chocolate making and tasting. Camp Quality Ambassador Jarrod Woodgate joined in for some archery fun!
On Saturday night, parents got a well-deserved break and could enjoy a kids-free night out with a three-course meal. Meanwhile, the kids had even more fun playing games and were treated to a magic show hosted by Hyper the clown.
The weekend was wrapped by a very generous lunch provided by the local Lions club in the Charles Darwin national park.
Every family facing cancer should get a break. Camp Quality needs help to ensure we can run enough camps for the 4,000 families currently registered for our services and programs. Will you help us give these families a much-needed break from cancer?
