As with every year the Community Development team started off the year with accompanying 19 children aged 8-11 on the week long Lions Village Licola Camp in Gippsland.
Money is generously raised by the Lions Clubs of Geelong and surrounds to send 142 deserving children to a fun filled, action packed camp.
The weather over the week was perfect, no bushfires or floods like in previous years!
The children from a refugee background that attended enjoyed many new experiences such as canoeing, swimming, the giant swing and a flying fox, learning to play the ukulele and making plenty of new friends.
Thanks to the volunteers who came along as well as to Brian Edward from the Geelong Lions club who works tirelessly to make this camp happen.
