From 30 September to 2 October 2018, Wilderness School students will join forces with St Peter’s College to host a Sony Foundation Camp for children with special needs. This exciting venture will take place over three days in the Boarding House at St Peter’s College.

The purpose of the camp is to provide an enjoyable and memorable experience for the children and to give their parents, carers and siblings two full days and nights of respite.

We are keen to hear from families who would like to be involved and have children aged between 8 and 14 years’ who have special needs.

Our Year 11 students will be companions for the children for the duration of the camp and will get to experience the joys and challenges that come with the privilege of caring for a child with special needs.

The students will be supported by a team of teaching and medical staff as well as a support crew made up of Year 10 students. This venture provides an opportunity to not only experience incredible personal growth but to contribute to a common goal. At the same time, much fun is had by all as a range of engaging and enjoyable activities have been planned.

The Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camps are a wonderful initiative that began in 1999 and has grown significantly to around 30 camps Australia wide each year.

We would love to hear from anyone who knows a child between 8 and 14 years who has special needs and would like to participate in this years’ camp. Please contact Bess Smith (Head of Extended Curriculum) at
