Each year, children with kidney disease get to spend four days away together out in the fresh air. Many lead isolated lives as a result of their condition and treatment. Kidney Kids Camp is a safe, fun and life-changing camp designed especially for children with kidney disease and their siblings.
2019 Kidney Kids Camp will be held across 29 May – 2 June on the Mornington Peninsula.
Children with chronic kidney disease or kidney failure face many physical, emotional and psychological challenges, which can include:
- interpersonal relationship problems
- feelings of social isolation
- behaviour and learning problems
- delayed language skills development
- delayed motor skills development
- a negative self-image
There are a range volunteer opportunities at the Kidney Kids Camp - If you’d like to volunteer at this year’s Kids camp, please contact us by emailing Annette Smith via firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
