Camp Opportunity

Camp Opportunity is a week long live in camp for special-needs adult “Campers”, between the ages of 18 and 35 years, to team with an able-bodied carer “Buddy” for a week of adventure as they mix and interact in a fun atmosphere to share new friendships and experiences.

The Campers and Buddies engage in many and varied activities including Archery, Abseiling, Flying Fox, Ten Pin Bowling, Adventure World, Zoo visit, T-shirt screen printing, Disco & Karaoke, Water Sports (biscuit and boat rides), Kite Making, Art and Craft, Talent Night and lots of swimming and laughter.
“Campers” may be friends, neighbours, colleagues, employees, or may come from Disability Services and other disability organisations such as Good Samaritans, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and Headwest. “Buddies”, are sourced from Rotary Club members, friends, neighbours, colleagues, employees, Rotaract members, past exchange students, RYLA participants, Local Church and Youth Groups, Universities and TAFEs (Nursing, Teaching, Medical, Youth and Community studies).

The Rotary Club of Mount Lawley supports Camp Opportunity by sponsoring Buddies and Campers to engage in this confidence building and life-changing initiative.
