Legacy Youths bound for Stradbroke Island
Sun, sand, and memories to last a lifetime; 44 Legacy Youths are on their way to Summer Camp on Stradbroke Island. The participants, all aged between 10 and 17, come from far and wide with Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and NSW clubs all participating this year.
The 2016 Legacy Youth Summer Camp is hosted and organised by Legacy Brisbane in partnership with the Courier Mail Children’s Fund, who have generously provided $60, 000 of funding.
On Stradbroke Island, campers will have the opportunity to build confidence and develop social and leadership skills in a safe and fun environment. All activities are designed to introduce new challenges and experiences and include sandboarding, kayaking, surfing, yoga on the beach, beach fishing, Aboriginal history talks and boomerang painting. The camp also gives parents at home much needed respite and time to themselves.
Legacy Brisbane hosts a Youth Summer Camp each year as part of its Youth Development and Family Assist Program. The program aims to support the young families of those who have served our country. Other program activities include Youth Winter Camp, which is run in conjunction with Melbourne Legacy, and Family Weekends Away. Family Weekends run throughout the year and focus on younger Legacy Widows, Widowers and their children.
Legacy Brisbane extends its thanks to the Courier Mail Children’s Fund and all the donors who contributed. Without their support this camp would not have been possible.
