The National Allergy Council is hosting an Allergy 250K camp for school aged teens with severe allergy in Perth, Western Australia
14 October 2022:
We are excited to announce the details of our upcoming camp for school aged teens being held in Perth, Western Australia, from Saturday 3 December to Sunday 4 December 2022. The overnight camp is open to children aged between 10-18 years who are still at school and at risk of anaphylaxis.
The camp program will include a mixture of team outdoor activities (such as crate climb, archery and giant swing) and interactive allergy information sessions run by health professionals. Accommodation will be dormitory style (not in tents). To see highlights from previous camps, visit the Allergy 250K school aged teens website [https://allergy250kteens.org.au/youth-camps].
All food allergies will be catered for and at least one allergy dietitian with extensive experience in food allergy will oversee meal preparation and meal service during the camp. National Allergy Council staff will be attending the camp along with clinical immunology/allergy specialists, allergy nurses and allergy dietitians experienced in complex food allergy.
There is no cost to participate in the camp, however, camp participants will need to make their own way to and from the camp on Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. There is also the option to attend as a day camper on Saturday only. If a child would like to participate but lives outside of Western Australia, please let us know, as while we cannot fund airfares, they can still participate if they can get to the camp venue.
