Handicamp: A week full of fun and challenges, and a lifetime of experiences.

 

Handicamp provides an opportunity for young people with a disability and between the ages of 18-35, to attend a one-week live-in camp assisted by staff and buddies. Applications open on 1 October for the camp which is held in mid-January of the following year for both campers and buddies.

 

What is Handicamp?
Handicamp is a week long live in camp for 18 to 35 year old people with disability, who are teamed with a "buddy" for a week of fun and adventure. The camp is based on double participation and reward, supervised by a volunteer Rotary committee and nursing support.
 
Interested Young people who live, go to school or work in the City of Melville are invited to contact the Club’s Youth Director.
