2022 Camp for Disabled Youth: 6 – 8 May 2022


Following the 2021 Asia Pacific Youth Camp on the Gold Coast and the subsequent announcement that the Australian Association will host regular camps to for disabled youth, the first regional camp for the Central Eastern Region confirmed in May with a second camp planned in the South Eastern Region in September.

The three-day camp will host 75 guests, carers and Order of Malta Volunteers at the Benedict XVI Centre in Richmond, which has excellent facilities and accommodation for our disabled guests.  Activities will include craft, discos an excursion to a water park and an indoor skydiving experience.

“It really will be a fantastic opportunity for all involved, not just the guests” explained Regional Hospitaller, Steve Christie. “We are pleased that the NSW participants who were unable to attend camp last year due to restrictions will now be able to participate in an Order of Malta camp. We hope this will be the first of many such camps in our region”.

The cost to host the Camp will be $50,000. Please consider a tax deductible donation to support this project.
