Recreational Activities

Muscular Dystrophy South Australia organises a number of social events for people with a neuromuscular condition, their families and carers – such as the annual Camp Capacity and the Grown Up’s Getaway which are both designed to provide an opportunity for individuals to socialise, relax and have fun.

 

Camp Capacity is a four night, five day camp held for people with neuromuscular conditions and their siblings who are aged between 5-25. It is a great opportunity for campers to make new friends, gain new experiences and enjoy themselves away from home. Campers are matched up with volunteer carers who assist them throughout their stay. Camp is also a great chance for parents and carers to have some time of welcome respite.

Similarly, the Grown Up’s Getaway is a “getaway” weekend for adult clients once per year. In March 2014 a group of clients & their carers headed to the Wallaroo North Beach Caravan Park for three nights – they enjoyed time at the beach, meals at local eateries and exploring local towns.
