Camp Kula N’ Gadu 2016

Under the capable leadership of Carolyn Campbell-McLean, what a fabulous camp this was for both campers and carers!
The weather was great.  The activities were lots of fun with fishing; damper cooking; birds and creepy crawlies; mad scientists; a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party; catching up with the Manly players, and of course, swimming in the academy pool.   Thanks to the fantastic effort from the carers in getting the campers in and out of the pool, this became a huge favourite.
