Camp Twinkletoes

About Camp Twinkletoes

For a family with a newly diagnosed child, the future is uncertain. Camp Twinkletoes supports families to adapt to this uncertainty and build the mental strength to care for their children in the most positive way possible.

Camp Twinkletoes is an annual event designed to help families caring for young children under the age of 8 years with juvenile arthritis.

Camp Twinkletoes 2022

We are so happy to be back and holding Camp Twinkletoes face-to-face. There is not doubt we have all been challenged by the last two years and whether your child is newly diagnosed or you’ve been managing your little ones condition for some time now, this is a great opportunity to connect with other families going through a similar journey of living with JIA. Not only will you, as a parent receive useful information to support you in managing your child’s condition, your little one will also get to meet other children with the condition and enjoy a day of play and fun interactions.

Please register your interest to attend the next Camp Twinkletoes:

Can you help support next year’s Camp Twinkletoes?

Juvenile arthritis now affects one in every 1,000 Australian children but only 30 young people were able to attend this year’s Camp Footloose. We would love to accommodate more campers each year, as well as offer camps in rural areas. Funding is the highest barrier, but you can help by donating here.
