Expressions of Interest: 2019 Asia Pacific Camp for Disabled Youth


The 2019 Asia Pacific Camp for Disabled Youth will be held in Hong Kong between 23-26 October.

”I’ve never been on holiday without my family. It felt great knowing I can be independent and be among others my age!
Guest, Wai Yin

For the last thirty years the Order of Malta has a tradition of holding summer camps for disabled youth aged between 18 to 30. The goals of the camps are to forge a sense of community, promote cultural exchange and help young people to overcome personal barriers.

For the 2019 Asia Pacific Camp, over 50 young people with disabilities and 100 volunteers will come together in Hong Kong for a once in a lifetime week of fun, friendship and adventure. Guests from all around the Asia Pacific region, including Australia, Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong and Singapore will take part.

For our guests with disabilites, the Camp is more than just a break from daily routine. It’s an opportunity to get out in the world and be inspired by what it has to offer.

Interested in Volunteering? We are seeking suitable volunteers to assist ‘Team Australia’ at the next Camp. They may also fill the important positions of Team Leaders for our contingent. This is a fantastic opportunity for energetic, enthusiastic and compassionate volunteers who would like to make a difference by providing support to the young disabled participants and their carers at the camp.
