Youth Events

Youth CampJames and the youth mentors are looking forward to meeting up with everyone on the weekend of 28-30 October for the 2016 HFQ Youth Camp. I hope that you all have a great time having fun, socialising and learning new things.

This weekend is full to the brim with activities for all young people of about year 5 and over. Emu Gully is totally committed to achieving our specific goals which include having fun but also seeks to challenge our young people to embrace living with a bleeding condition.

One of the most effective tests of character is pressure and the team at Emu Gully use a mirror approach to inform participants of both positive and negative actions they may experience at camp

As with all weekends away, please do not forget to bring any medications, including clotting factors for your own use. There is a refrigerator in the kitchen area which we will be able to use.

So book your place now or contact Graham on 3017 1778 or for more information.

Young people are a keen focus for the organisation as your child needs to be prepared for a lifetime of awareness and skills to manage their bleeding disorder.

We have some young men willing to mentor and talk with you or your child if you want to talk to someone of a similar age and they host occasional events for young people like ten bowling and movie nights. They are also the mainstay of our youth camp.

Next Event

Count Van Clottular is planning the next youth event right now! It is on 24 February 2018 when we are going to SupaGolf. This is a great time to meet up with other young people affected by bleeding disorders and some of them who will be going to this year’s camp. But, it’s open to everyone. We have booked for a morning round of 9 holes and you don't need to know the rules of golf as it's played with over-sized balls and clubs and the idea is to have fun. We are hopefull that Haley the LCCH physiotherapist will also join us for part of the day to answer any questions you may have about the appropriate exercise for you. We’ll post more here soon!

Each summer we also host a family friendly HFQ Summer Social Event either before Christmas or on Australia Day (26 January) and this is another opportunity for young people to get to meet each other while having an enjoyable day out. This year we went to WhiteWater World so don't miss out, next time. Let the office know you are interested so we can let you know before the next event happens.

Youth Camp

Our main activity is the annual youth camp and the 2017 Youth Camp was held in October with the boys having a fantastic weekend. We had 21 young people at camp with most young men aged between 10 and 16 years of age and all living with an inherited bleeding disorder.

The program was full of fun activities from the mud run to Commando Cable Crossing and indoor Rock Climbing. Our thanks go to James, Lauren and the youth mentors as well as the staff at Emu Gully Check out their website for this enjoyable camp experience.

The next camp is booked for 12 October, so if you missed out last time, please email us so you can be placed on this year’s participant list or watch this space for the dates of future youth camps. Graham can be contacted by email: or phone: 0419 706 056.
