Camps

Camps run by Hands & Feet are used to provide an exciting week away for our campers while also providing a week of respite for families and carers. All of our camps are Christian camps and have times specifically set aside for bible stories and singing as we aim to tell the campers about Gods love for them.

Camp Jono

Camp Jono is a camp for children (7-18) with developmental disabilities that gives these children with a unique holiday camp experience that they might not be able to have on regular holiday camps. This camp is run through a team of exceptional volunteers who strive to create an incredible week for the campers that come along.

We run a series of activities aimed at campers’ varied developmental levels. Each camper is paired with a one-on-one carer for the week, with several additional camp leaders and buddies providing supervision. A second aim of Camp Jono is to provide parents and carers with a week of respite from their daily care provision.

Camp Jono is run in the January school holidays, registrations will open closer to the date.

Camp Sam

Camp Sam is the newest addition to our camp family, aimed at providing a gap between the high energy Camp Jono and the more relaxed Camp David.

Camp Samuel is a weekend camp for young adults (aged 18-30 years) with an intellectual or developmental disability.

We run a range of activities to encourage social participation and develop basic life skills. Campers are allocated to small cabin groups with a high level of care and supervision in a supportive Christian environment.

Camp Samuel aims to:

  • provide a fun weekend away for young adults with an intellectual or developmental disability
  • enable campers to make new friends and develop life skills
  • provide parents and carers with a weekend of respite from their daily caring responsibilities
  • share God’s love with campers

Camp Samuel will be running in 2018 from the 17th until the 19th of August.

Camp David

Camp David aims at providing a week away for adults with intellectual disabilities, at both the Lutanda Yarramundi and Lutanda Mount Victoria campsites.

Campers need to be able to bathe, dress and feed themselves with only limited assistance from helpers (we are unable to cater for severe disabilities). We provide a caring environment and engaging activities, including craft, outings, walks, singing, daily Bible stories and concert night, to ensure they have an enjoyable experience, giving their parents/carers the opportunity for a week of respite.
