Camp Opportunity

Camp Opportunity is a week long live in camp for special-needs adult “Campers”, between the ages of 18 and 35 years, to team with an able-bodied carer “Buddy” for a week of adventure as they mix and interact in a fun atmosphere to share new friendships and experiences.
Camp Opportunity is held at the Point Walter Recreation Centre, Bicton which is a dormitory style camp with rooms for 4 people: each has its own bathroom.
The Campers and Buddies engage in many and varied activities including Archery, Abseiling, Flying Fox, Ten Pin Bowling, Adventure World, Zoo visit, T-shirt screen printing, Disco & Karaoke, Water Sports (biscuit and boat rides), Kite Making, Art and Craft, Talent Night and lots of swimming and laughter.
To source “Campers”, ask your Rotary Club members, friends, neighbours, colleagues, employees, Disability Services and other disability organisations such as Good Samaritans, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and Headwest.
For “Buddies”, ask Rotary Club members, friends, neighbours, colleagues, employees, Rotaract members, past exchange students, RYLA participants, Local Church and Youth Groups, Universities and TAFEs (Nursing, Teaching, Medical, Youth and Community studies).
If you can’t find an applicant just pledge sponsorship and we will find the “Campers” and “Buddies”.
Cost per person is $800.  Campers and Buddies are fully sponsored so we urge clubs to sponsor a “Camper”, “Buddy” or both and consider helping by sponsoring event opportunities or donating goods and services to help run the camp.
