Teen Camp is just a week away
With HeartKids Teen Camp just over a week away (Monday 9 July until Friday 13 July 2018), we are very grateful for the many supporters who backed our teen's and young adults with CHD. These include Amway Foundation, Commonwealth Bank, Westpac, Harcourts, plus the many individuals who supported the camp attendees own fundraising efforts.
At HeartKids we appreciate that childhood heart disease requires life long care including at key life stages that's why we hold Teen Camp to equip young people with the skills and support group to transition into adulthood. This camp together with our Teen Transition Education Days helps ease prepare early teens and young people be more independent in their health care needs.
For the first time this year we will be training 15 young adults as Peer Mentors whilst they attend Teen Camp. These remarkable young people have unique perspectives and lived experience to share with other young people and now young adults. Our Young Adult Peer Mentors are remarkable people and we look forward to sharing content online during the week
