Ocean Grove Neighbourhood Centre’s Drop in Crew, youth program headed to the Gold Coast on its annual camp during the school holidays.
“The camp program forms part of the youth program and is extremely important,” centre manager Nicki Dunne said.
“The camp provides opportunities for young people to have a great time while engaging with youth workers and the local police members they also gain skills in budgeting, self esteem and responsibility while away.”
Thirty-one young people along with seven qualified youth workers and Senior Constable Glenn Kelly headed off on four days of visiting the theme parks.
They attended Dreamworld, Movie World and Wet ‘n’ Wild.
The Drop in Youth Program is for 11 to 18 year olds, and everyone is welcome. It’s facilitated by qualified youth and social workers and has no affiliations with any political or church denominations.

Drop in is available every Friday night during school terms from 6pm to 9pm and costs between $5 and $20 depending on the activity. All in-house events are $5 and this covers the cost of staff and dinner.
