Camp Lionheart is an initiative of the Kids Rehab Department of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and is a joint project with the Lions Club of Carlingford-Dundas.Camp Lionheart Logo

Initially, the Camp’s aim was to address the recreation and respite needs of children with an acquired brain injury. The Camp now includes other children, as assessed by the Kids Rehab team, who would benefit from the fun, education and social support that the Camp experience can provide.

Since the project began in 2003, the Lions Club has raised over $340,000 to fund the annual Camp and its associated development activities.

In recent years, Camp Lionheart has been held at Sydney Academy of Sport, Narrabeen. In 2013, children between the ages of 7 and 13 years, Kids Rehab staff members and volunteers attended the Camp which has now become an adventure the children will never forget and includes a weekend of activities in which they usually cannot participate due to their disabilities.

The children were hoisted out of their wheelchairs and placed into the sailboats where most had never experienced this feeling of freedom before. One child even saw a sting ray. Another great highlight was the CSIRO Science show, where the children were able to participate in some great experiments, including the making of ice-cream with liquid nitrogen and then eating it!

Other activities included wheelchair basketball, swimming, archery, and messy art and craft sessions.camp lionheart basketball
