Historically one of PHISAs most popular events was our family camp. Held every two years it was a time for families to be together with other people that "get it". It was a chance to hear some great things from guest speakers whilst the kids just enjoyed being kids, whilst being cared for by camp staff. It was a fantastic weekend enjoyed by all.
When we used to run these camps, it was the same people that volunteer to run the committee that ran all of the camp including cooking meals, caring for children and making sure speaker programs ran well. Our volunteers would source food donations, go and collect them and transport them to the camp - no wonder they were exhausted by the end of the weekend.
This was a time too when many of our volunteers were not working full time as is currently the case with all our committee members! Our volunteers just don't have the time to do things the way we used to.
We are thinking about resurrecting the family camp but to do so we need to get some sponsorship and a show of support from the families of SA that this is something that they want!!!
So if you want another family camp - then let us know! Contact us here
