Fitzroy Falls Conference Centre
Robyn and Martin consider the most vital aspect of their work at the
centre to be the children's Holiday Camps run in the winter school
holidays and all through January.
In 1979, the first camp for children in need was held. A charity with
it's own committee financially supports both the Summer Camp and
Winter Camp specifically for needy kids. Children are referred
through DoCS, Barnardos, Burnside, Family Support, Lone Parents,
Aunties and Uncles, Schools and Churches and they come at a
very low cost or are sponsored through generous donations from
friends, camp leaders themselves, and organisations.
January 1980 saw the instigation of Breakaway Camps, run in
conjunction with O.A.C. ministries. Junior and Senior Camps are
now run solely by the Conference Centre and have become
important events in the lives of many young people.
Directors of these camps are all experienced camp workers who
have a wonderful rapport with children. Leaders are drawn from
churches of many denominations both in the local area and other
parts of the state.
