Event Description

An interactive camp designed specifically for children and teenagers (aged 7-17yrs) with Ehlers Danlos and Joint Hypermobility.

Event Information

Camp Stretch provides children with Ehlers Danlos and/or Joint Hypermobility the opportunity to enjoy themselves, bond with others with the same musculoskeletal condition and participate in activities to celebrate enablement. The camp also promotes personal growth and foster independence.

Participants are encouraged to try new experiences in order to gain self-confidence, learn co-operation and communication, and increase personal independence and self-management.

Children at Camp are supervised by medical staff as well as Arthritis & Osteoporosis WA volunteers, (many of them were previous campers themselves) which provides a unique opportunity for children with arthritis to mix with other individuals who understand exactly what they are going through.

Camp numbers are limited so please register early to avoid disappointment.
