Camp Footloose provides a valuable opportunity for children and young people with arthritis (aged 9 to 18 years) to have fun, meet others like them and share experiences in a supportive environment. It also helps them gain a sense of control over arthritis and their lives.
About the camp
Dedicated team leaders and staff attend camp and guide participants through a range of exciting activities such as abseiling, flying fox, rock climbing, challenge ropes course and archery. Fun education sessions will be facilitated by fully qualified health professionals and we will also have nursing staff available 24/7 to assist with medications and other medical matters that may arise.
