27 Apr Virtual Camp 2022
We held our first ever Kidney Kids virtual camp 8-9th April 2022. There were over 100 children who participated from 5-15 years old. It was a fantastic online event and so good to see so many families joining in. Everyone had a blast. Thank you to all of our first time ever virtual campers. Kidney kids and their siblings were invited to virtual camp in their living rooms, backyards or wherever the children decided to camp over night. Everyone connected to a live zoom link so campers could tune in. Walter was our amazing camp MC and engaged with the children. There was hat decorating, a movie night, pancake making, rhythmic gymnastics and lots of fun to be had.
It was wonderful to see the children having such a great time. Georgie from Starship joined us too throughout the camp. A big thank you to Walter for being the best MC! and to Georgie. You are amazing and the kids loved seeing you both. We had a special Virtual Camp Facebook page set up for campers to communicate with each other during camp and post photos and updates of what they were up to. Campers also received a map of NZ showing them where all their fellow kidney kid campers were based around the country.
Kidney Kids would also like to say a big thank you to Ophelia, Olivia and Vikki Lee from Goode PR who very generously helped and contributed towards this camp and sourced goodies for the camp kits which were sent out to each participating family. Thank you for helping us make this happen.
