Camp Crystal

Camp Crystal | Cancer Related Youth Support Time Allocated to Laughter

Each year, Childhood Cancer Support holds a free camping getaway for families of children who are presently facing or have faced childhood cancer, regardless of what stage they are currently at, are welcome to join the camp. Some families may have children who are newly diagnosed, some may be in remission, some may be long-term survivors and others may be parents or siblings of those who have passed.

The Camp is run over a 3-day long weekend during the Easter holiday period. Camp activities begin on Friday evening and conclude with lunch on Sunday. Families can arrive as early as lunchtime on Friday to get settled in.  A map and directions are provided to all successful camp applicants.

This year Camp Crystal will be held from 7th-9th April 2017 at the Scouts QLD Baden Powell Centre, Samford, a short 30 minute drive from Brisbane CBD. Interest levels are high, so please note spaces are limited and therefore a place cannot always be guaranteed. Applications are due on the 27th February 2017. Please contact the office for more details.

Filled with fun activities suitable for the whole family, Camp Crystal is a weekend-escape for families to recharge and remind themselves that there is a life to be lived outside of hospital appointments and treatments, and a place where you can come to enjoy yourself, relax and reflect. Here are some of the activities that take place at Camp Crystal:

Horse riding
– Arts and crafts activities
– Astronomy
– Trivia
– Traverse
– Face-painting
– Woodworking and jewellery making
– FWD driving adventures
