HANDICAMP REPORT from Robin Hamilton
Handicamp has been held for the last 17 years and over 450 campers have attended for the weeks camp. It is for 18 to 38 year old adult people with mild to moderate intellectual or physically challenges. It was held from the 22 to 28 March this year. It is a District 9460 annual recurring project with a coordination committee to organise it. It is hosted on a rotating basis by different clubs. This year it was hosted by Rockingham RC and held in Rockingham.
Attadale RC sponsored 2 people, campers and/or carers to attend Handicamp. The cost was $790.
2 campers eventually attended and they were Richard Marsh and Leigh Blythe. Both were taken down to Rockingham and brought back a week later.
They were very apprehensive about going to the camp, but after a couple hours there started to enjoy themselves. At the end, the saying of farewells took a long time. They enjoyed the camp very much and Richard particularly wants go back next year. The staff running the camp were lovely people and our thanks must go to them for all the effort that they put in, to make it such a very successful camp.
