The National Allergy Council is hosting another Allergy 250K camp and this time it’s being held on the Sunshine Coast, QLD. The overnight camp is for young people aged 10-18 years, still at school, with severe allergy and at risk of anaphylaxis.
The weekend of adventure will take place just over an hour north of the Brisbane CBD and run from Saturday 11 March to Sunday 12 March 2023. If you only want to attend on the Saturday, that’s also an option. Camp is a fantastic opportunity to meet other teens living with severe allergy while experiencing the excitement and fun of camp in a safe and supportive environment.
What do we do on Allergy 250K camps you might ask? We play games, eat some very tasty food, get involved in a bunch of fun activities. The format of the camp will be a mixture of team outdoor activities and allergy information sessions run by health professionals. The rest of the fun is up to you and the new friends you will meet.
All food allergies will be catered for and at least one allergy dietitian with experience in food allergy will be overseeing meal preparation and meal service during the camp. The accommodation will be dormitories (not tents).
There is no participation cost as we have received Government funding for this camp. If you live outside of Queensland and would like to participate, please let us know, as while we cannot fund airfares, you can still participate if you can get to the camp venue.
To find out more or register your interest, email the National Allergy Council Manager before Friday 17 February 2022 at (firstname.lastname@example.org). Places are limited, so please register early. We look forward to seeing you there!
