Camps for Disadvantaged Kids

The Lord’s Taverners Camp program for disadvantaged children has been a successful venture for several years.

Successful camps have used accommodation at Southern Cross University, Woodlawn College and Lake Ainsworth Sport and Rec Centre. In 2017 we held a very successful overnight camp at Corndale School with 26 children attending from Upper Primary levels. We were supported by the Corndale P&C, professional coaches and our members.

Participants have been mostly disadvantaged by distance, isolation and non opportunity. Our camps have delivered special instruction by well qualified people in cricket, tennis, football, golf, ten pin bowling and special water activities of swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and sailing.

Future activities will cover game skills for disabled and a talented athletics program.

Most recruiting of participants is carried out through contacts in schools and local Lord’s Taverners connections.
