Camp Oz a treat
Georgia makes new friends
THE positive attitude of Coalstoun Lakes’ Georgia Corfield, who suffered burns in a motorbike accident last year, earned her an invitation to Camp Oz.
The excited youngster was invited by the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation which funded the camp for a small group of children, aged from eight to 16 years of age, who had been affected by burns.
Georgia’s mum Kim said she attended the PCYC Bornhoffen Camp at Lamington National Park where they undertook many activities with the focus on self confidence, resilience and living with a burn.
Georgia said her favourite activity was the high ropes, having to scale the telephone pole and abseil back down and canoeing activities in the creek.
Occupational therapists at Royal Children’s Hospital Burn Unit, Kate and Dimity, commented that Georgia’s positive attitude and the strength and determination she showed in hospital resulted in her being invited to Camp Oz.
Georgia said the main highlights of the camp were meeting new friends and catching up with the staff from the burns unit.
