Junior Camp Extravaganza!

20 June 2023

In the picturesque setting of Mt Eliza, our annual Junior Camp brought together a lively group of troopers aged 4 to 7 years. Nestled at Camp Manyung – a place close to our hearts as it hosted our inaugural camp in 1983 – we embarked on an unforgettable two-day adventure.

From the moment we arrived, the air buzzed with excitement as we dived into a whirlwind of thrilling activities. The laughter-filled echoes of soaring and jumping at Inflatable World filled the atmosphere, while the vibrant artistry of circus skills brought grace and colour to our camp. Every second was dedicated to crafting memories that will last a lifetime.

For many of these young adventurers, this camp marked their first foray away from the familiarity and comfort of home. And though a few were nervous about leaving the loving embrace of their parents, their initial reluctance swiftly transformed into wide-eyed enthusiasm upon discovering the exhilarating journey ahead. From then on, the magic never waned, and the smiles on our troopers’ faces remained steadfast.

We extend a heartfelt and sincere thank you to each and every one of our incredible contributors – Inflatable World, Felix the Magician, CONNECT/Giuliano Group, Mt Eliza CFA, Circus Lab, Build A Bear, Rubies Deerfield, and our exceptionally talented face painters, Toula and Fairy Mary – who made this special camp a resounding success. Your unwavering dedication and support have been instrumental in bringing together a truly wonderful camp.

To our volunteers, thank you! Much of this camp’s success depends on the support, comfort, and love you bestow upon these kids, allowing them to fully embrace every moment and revel in the joys of their experiences. Without your compassion and support, this camp would not be possible.

What a camp, and we are counting down the days until the next one!
