Weekly Camping Facilities at “Camp Windamere”
A learning and training facility for young Intellectually Disadvantaged adults
The rural ethos and atmosphere, both environmentally Windamere has undertaken to extend its daily services to its disadvantaged young adult clientele by building a Camp site facility, aptly named Camp Windamere. This additional service will offer the following:
Camp Windamere will provide an outdoors, camp-like structure where clients will be exposed to a variety of learning situations during the weeks through relevant courses on offer. These courses are offered so as to enhance their life style by providing vocational opportunities and thus greater independence, as well as increasing their ability to more successfully utilise our community’s leisure and recreational facilities on offer.
Vocational skills training courses, able to be undertaken by people with special needs, will be offered during the day. Farm and orchard maintenance, animal care, fencing, mowing, and wood work are some of the possibilities which are able to provide these vocational opportunities. In the evenings daily living skills and recreational, leisure activities are taught and experienced.
The CAMP also can provide additional learning skills in the form of cooking, arts and crafts and computer skills.
Camp Windamere will help and assist to further normalise and integrate life styles in need!
