What's going on?
Whew... What a super busy month the Young Carer Super Team have had! Elise has been running around excitedly organising camps (more on that below) and holiday fun for YOU lucky young people!
So what's been happening? Well Elise and I took a lucky 22 young people - not to mention 3 more awesome volunteers - to Rottnest Island for three days just last weekend (7th, 8th and 9th of October). The weather generally stayed gorgeous but we did get a bit of rain dumped on us on our last day there!
Snorkelling, swimming, team games and scavenger hunts, bike riding, quokka watching and sun baking were just a few of the activities we all enjoyed over the weekend. Elise and I are pretty sure that we aren't the only ones with extremely sore backsides from all the time we spend on our bikes! Check out the Photos & Videos section of the website to see all the fun we had. Thanks to Telethon for giving us the opportunity to run the camp!
So what WILL be happening? Boy have we got lots of exciting awesomeness in store for you over the summer school holidays! Keep checking the post or your email inbox for information about what activities are happening and when - make sure you phone us or email us to register your interest once you get all the information!
This weekend is also a pretty exciting one - TELETHON! Carers WA will have a stall at the Telethon Expo at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre so drop by and say hello. We are really excited about being a part of such a fantastic event and will hopefully be star spotting all weekend!
If you have any more questions about what is happening in the Young Carers team, call us! We love a chat!
See you all soon!
