Camp 2016 was a huge success, we look forward to camp 2018.

The PKU Association would like to give a huge THANK YOU to all the organisers and supervisors who gave up their time to make this years camp a success. THANK YOU to James, Paul, Ray, Chelsea, Barbara, Sarah, Meredith, Jenny, Vanessa & Bridie.
A big thanks to Tess and Rosie from CHW for the Education Session. 

We appreciate and thank Vitaflo, Nutricia, Platypus Foods, Cortex Health, Choices Gluten Free for providing us with the products to make the camp a success. 
Lastly but most importantly thank you to Richard and his team at Point Wolstoncroft Sport & Recreation Centre for making the camp such a joyful event for the kids and challenging them to try something different.
We look forward to camp 2018. 
The Youth Camp is a great opportunity for children with PKU to get together between the ages of 8-17 and enjoy activities such as archery & rock climbing while getting to know about other kids from around Australia who have PKU. They also learn more about PKU, how others manage their PKU, and importantly, become aware of other food ideas and recipes to assist with the diet.
The aim of the National PKU Youth Camp is to have a fantastic time with other PKU children. Campers get to experience various outdoor activities that will test their confidence and encourage team bulding and problem solving skills. Just as importantly, campers will get the opportunity to make new friends and try new low protein foods. This amounts to a great deal of fun for all our campers in a safe and well supervised environment.
