Young Carers and Siblings
Camp Breakaway holds two Young Carers and Siblings camps each year for 40 young carers of a parent with a physical or mental disability and siblings of children with high medical needs, rare disorders and or disabilities.
Siblings of children with high medical needs, rare disorders and or disabilities grow up in families where the dynamics present additional issues. So often, the needs of these children get unintentionally overlooked. By supporting siblings, they likely adjust more positively to add to the quality of life of children with high medical needs, rare disorders and or disabilities. And this leads to the whole family functioning more positively.
During camp, young carers and siblings are spoilt, fussed over, and enjoy an awesome week of activities and entertainment.
The Young Carers and Siblings camps are organised and run by our experienced volunteer team.
