Youth camp

Allergy New Zealand Youth Camp

9 – 11 May 2008

Hey, you interested in having fun and talking with other teenagers who live with
food allergies? Come to camp and experience a weekend like no other. It will feature
all the awesome activities that make camps memorable, give you an opportunity to talk
about the real issues that affect you and listen to some of the top allergy experts.

Interested? Check out the details below…

Date: Friday 9 May to Sunday 11 May

Venue: Carey Park, Henderson, Waitakere City (in Auckland)

For: Teenagers (13 - 19) with food allergies

Cost: $55 (members) or $80 (non-members)

Activities: Include rock climbing, abseiling, flying fox

Talk-fest: Open interactive forums with Allergy specialists

And now for the other important stuff…

A parent / caregiver must attend camp with anyone under 16 (optional for over 16). A unique and separate programme will be run for parents that will give them a chance to discuss stuff and ask questions of the Allergy experts. They will also be invited to help oversee the food preparation alongside Allergy New Zealand staff and volunteers.

You’ll have to organise your own travel* however Allergy New Zealand will provide transport between the airport and Carey Park for those flying into Auckland. An information sheet and registration form can be downloaded (see below), or contact us ask for them to be posted to you.

* For those needing help with the cost of airfares you may be able to approach your local Rotary or Lions Clubs. You can download some information, and also a supporting letter from Allergy New Zealand (see below).
