Fun for five at wilderness camp

Lachlan prepares for a ride.

Ocean Grove-Barwon Heads Lions Club sponsored five children to attend an action packed five days at Licola Wilderness Village.
Lions sponsored 125 children from the ages of eight and 11 across the Geelong region to attend the camp.
Luke, Molly, Max, Aston and Lachlan from Ocean Grove, Surfside and Barwon Heads Primary Schools were the lucky recipients that benefitted from the spnsored by Ocean Grove-Barwon Heads Lions Club.
More than 20 activities kept the children entertained and challenged. The most popular activities included canoeing, giant swing, raft building and an introduction to playing the ukulele. The concert on the final night saw many children playing and singing ‘You are my Sunshine’ with great success.
The outdoor education staff and 40 volunteers made it an enjoyable and successful camp, where the children developed self-confidence and a positive attitude to the many challenges.
Around $300 sponsors each child which includes transport, food and accommodation. Volunteers are also needed each January. If you are able to assist, contact John Claringbold from Ocean Grove-Barwon Heads Lions Club on 0425-750 387.
