Doxa Holiday Camp is a highlight of the year for many of our young people from challenging life circumstances who look forward to their chance to get a much-needed holiday, either at our Malmsbury or City Camp. It’s an opportunity for them to have fun, make friends and enjoy new positive life experiences.
At our City Camp this year, we saw 30 campers from across Victoria take a trip to Melbourne CBD to participate in activities including: stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking on the Yarra and our now-famous “Masterchef” burger cooking challenge.
And at our Malmsbury Camp, we hosted a record 149 Campers. Many thanks to our dedicated team of 30 volunteers – we literally couldn’t do this without you! Highlights from across the camps included: horsemanship, swimming, circus skills and even a visit to Kryall Castle.
Holiday Camper parents’ feedback:
“At last week’s camp at Malmsbury, my daughters went and had an absolute ball. It was so good for their self-confidence as it was at an all-time low. You people are just amazing and I thank you so much for everything you do”
“I am the foster mother of a young person who attended and loved your Malmsbury Summer Camp this year. We have never seen him so happy after a camp before. He was full of enthusiasm and told us all about the activities and other kids…and it was really positive which is amazing for him.”
