A Memorable Weekend.

Friday 8th of March marked the beginning of the Labour Day weekend. For those lucky enough to be chosen, it also marked the beginning of an amazing, yet hot, Family Camp. With temperatures exceeding 30 degrees, 10 staff, 30 volunteers and about 40 families, gathered at Coonawarra Farm Resort, to make their long weekend a great one and one they will not quickly forget.

Whilethe volunteers were having a great time time with the kids in the pool, on the giant swing or flying fox, etc., the parents enjoyed their much-needed respite. Having said this, for me, family camp is always about the families and I always love getting to know the participants’ families better. It is awesome to hear feedback about how we have helped to make their lives that little bit easier. It truly makes you realise what an amazing organisation Interchange is and I, for one, am so grateful to be a part of such an organisation.

There was lots of positive feedback over the weekend. One family told me “that they couldn’t believe how confident their child is at IOE around all the volunteers, he’s like a different person”.

To finish, I just want to thank everyone who attended the 2013 Family Camp. You not only made it a fantastic camp for me, but a memorable one. I am already looking forward to Family Camp 2014.
