Teen Camp

NATIONAL HEARTKIDS TEEN CAMP IS HAPPENING AGAIN IN 2020!

We are excited to announce that HeartKids Teen Camp is being held 15-19 January, 2020 at Grantville Lodge, located just over an hour from Melbourne’s CBD. Grantville Lodge is situated on 30 hectares of natural bushland overlooking Westernport Bay, which makes it an ideal location for the HeartKids 2020 Teen Camp!   

The HeartKids Teen Camp brings together young people from all over Australia, who are connected by the fact that they are all living with congenital and/or acquired heart conditions. Teen Camp is a unique opportunity for young people aged between 13-17 years to connect with others who may have experienced a similar journey, develop new friendships and create ongoing peer support networks that continue long after Teen Camp finishes. Importantly, Teen Camp provides an opportunity for young people to increase their level of independence, build their own capacity to demonstrate self-management skills, and assists in developing their own self-confidence.
 
Teen Camp includes activities such as attempting physical challenges (within limits) and fun team building tasks that are completed in a supportive and safe environment. Teen Camp is a place where peers understand each other, including any limitations and/or health restrictions, which are all carefully considered as all Teen Camp attendees are under the supervision of specialised volunteers and medical team members. The medical team that attends includes cardiologists, doctors, nurses, allied health and community health workers all with specialist experience in cardiac care or adolescent health experience.
 
HeartKids Teen Camp is made possible through the generosity of our supporters and the camp nurses, doctors, volunteers and other staff who donate their time and expertise.
 
HeartKids Teen Camp relies on the much needed funds raised from the community and the generous donations from the corporate sector. If you would like to become involved in fundraising, or if you know/have a corporate connection that would like to support Teen Camp, then please don’t hesitate to contact us by email: teencamp@heartkids.org.au or call (03) 9329 0446 for further information.
