Worthy Partners Camp is by, for and with adults with disabilities who have low levels of personal care needs. We believe that in Christ, we are all made worthy of partnering together as we serve God. At camp, we will learn about the good news of Jesus and have opportunities to express our understanding of this good news in creative and engaging ways. There will also be heaps of fun activities to do!

This camp is also for adults with a physical disability who require low levels of personal care. This means they would not need supports such as slings and hoists, or a lot of help feeding, bathing, toileting. If an applicant requires such assistance, then an assessment will be made as to whether we are able to accomodate them at this camp.
There will be a helper with a current Senior First Aid Certificate and/or a Registered Nurse.
Warrambui Retreat and Conference Centre is wheelchair accessible but there may be a limit to the number of wheelchairs that can be accommodated.
Caregivers dropping their campers at the camp may want to spend the weekend in Canberra, or could be back in Sydney before 10pm.
If an applicant has a recent history of violence, or significant challenging behaviours, then a risk assessment will be conducted by camp directors to see if they are likely to endanger themselves or others on camp.
If any applicants are not able to be accommodated, we will inform them or their support person. We will arrange a refund of any camp fees that have been paid.
If you have any questions as to whether Worthy Partners Camp is suitable for you or the person you are supporting, please contact us by emailing: [email protected], or phoning Joe Pennington, 0423 149 486.
