The National Camp for New Zealand Burn Survivors
The five day camp organised by the Burn Support Group was another resounding success, featuring amazing weather which contributed to the enjoyment of all the provided outdoor activities.
The unique experience provided fun and games for the motivated 20 individuals attending, also inspiration and courage shone through the interactions of the children and welcome visitors.
This year as previously there was a diverse range of recreational and fun inspired activities.
It was a delight to entertain the burn survivors and families that visited during the camp.
Campers created a vibrant team as they displayed their talents at archery and mountain boarding, activities provided by Shakespear masters.
These wonderful activities foster a great sense of camaraderie for all.
With the support of these amazing organisations the group participated in:
AUCKLAND JET SKI RIDERS
SILVERDALE ADVENTURE PARK
OREWA SURF CLUB/BEACH EATERY
AUCKLAND ADVENTURE JET BOATS
MISS FOXY/FACE PAINTER
We also wish to acknowledge the wonderful, generous continued support from businesses that have involved themselves previously with Burn Support Group events.
We are truly grateful for these long standing relationships:
