HFQ Community Camp 2024

Wrap Up!

On 22nd—24th March, 120 members of the bleeding disorders community descended on Sandstone Point Resort for another wonderful HFQ Community Camp.

With our biggest numbers yet, it was a weekend full of community, bonding and LOTS of noise!

Camp kicked off with a welcome dinner of many, many subway platters on Friday night after everyone was checked in and settled in their lovely accommodation before heading to bed before a big day of activities on Saturday.

On Saturday, families (especially those with excited young children) were up early and ready to make the most of the impressive facilities Sandstone Point has to offer. Everyone got stuck into the go kart races, mini golf, jumping pillow, playground and arcade rooms. The parents made the most of the massage therapists hired by HFQ to give them some moments of relaxation amongst the chaos, while many a competitive game of basketball and tennis was taking place.

Saturday lunch was provided by the awesome team at the Bribie RSL before everyone got dolled up and headed to the Bribie RSL for a sit down dinner. Our new President, Shannon Wandmaker gave a fantastic presentation on the last 12 months and HFQ’s priorities moving forward with the ever-changing bleeding disorder landscape.

HFQ screened the documentary ‘Redefining Impossible: Elite Athletes with Haemophilia’ during dessert while the little ones were entertained by bubbles, colouring books and board games.

HFQ staff are already back in the office and busily prepping to make next year’s camp even bigger and better so keep your eyes on our socials and the H Factor for more details soon!

The Go Karts were a real hit!
Lots of fun was had playing tennis.
