WROK -a camp for teens with disabilities

WROK is the acronym for Wheelchairs Rule OK - but read on, it is open to teenagers and children with intellectual disabilities too, and they have asked us to tell our families about them!

What is WROK?
WROK is a 5 day camp run in the April school holidays each year for teenagers (12-21) with physical and/or intellectual disabilities and disorders.

Where/when does WROK happen?
Blue Gum Lodge in Springwood, NSW which is in the beautiful Lower Blue Mountains region.
7-11 April 2010

Who runs WROK ?
WROK is an Anglican Youthworks camp run by dedicated volunteer leaders many of whom have backgrounds in teaching (general and special education). Contact the Team for some profiles.

For more information and to locate application forms, visit the very cool WROK website: and read the FAQ pages.

What about younger kids?
This year for the first time WROK is inviting 8 - 12 year olds to experience just a taste of WROK! camp. Saturday 10th April, 2010 will be a special day for our potential younger campers. It will be a fun filled day and parents can either choose to stay for the day,watch the fun and relax in our special cafe. Or if you choose to leave your camper with us and explore the beautiful Blue Mountains.
You can contact the WROK team directly by email:
