Each year, Country Hope puts on a week of fun and activities for the children.
Since the inaugural holiday week held at Borambola Sport and Recreation Camp in 2003, the camps have provided a wide range of activities for the children from southern New South Wales and northern Victoria who have been diagnosed with cancer or life threatening illnesses, along with their carers and medical staff.
Wherever possible Country Hope also includes the brothers and sisters of children on treatment or those who have lost a brother or sister to cancer related illness.
Each child has a Country Hope carer who is responsible for the child and ensures they have a great time through the week. All of the Carers have attended the Country Hope Carer Training Course which is held annually, and are expected to maintain contact with their child throughout the year and become very special friends.
By joining the Charity Club you will directly assist in funding the children and their carers to the camp as well as provide each child with a personal gift pack as part of your donation.
